‘Jee Huzoor’: Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Shamshera’s first song out
The song is sung by Aditya Narayan with additional vocals by Shadab Faridi
Jee Huzoor, the first song from Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming period epic Shamshera, was released on Wednesday. In the video song, Ranbir can be seen playing with kids and dancing energetically. He is jumping from heights, balancing over a barrel and rolling downhill in trolleys on the backdrop of the upbeat track.
The song is sung by Aditya Narayan with additional vocals by Shadab Faridi. It is composed and written by Mithoon.
Apart from Ranbir, Shamshera also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor. The trailer of the film, which was released recently, took us to the year 1871. Ranbir plays a dacoit during the British Raj who loots merchants in the name of his father, Shamshera, a revolutionary. Vexed by his antics, the merchants knock on the doors of the Raj. Enter Sanjay Dutt’s Shuddh Singh, an Indian officer employed by the British who is tasked with handling the dacoits. In a double role, Ranbir plays the carefree dacoit son and his brooding revolutionary father. The glimpse of the film promises a lot of action.
Speaking about the film, director Karan Malhotra said, “Shamshera is a visual experience that has been designed to treat audiences with a spectacle like never before. We are thrilled to release the film in IMAX, which will deliver the film’s visual extravaganza to audiences across the globe in the most immersive way. Shamshera is an entirely new concept for today’s audience, and, we feel, it is a visual delight given the uniqueness of the subject."
On playing the villain in the film, Sanjay Dutt said, “It is always exciting to play the antagonist because you get to bend the rules, break the rules. I realised that when you play the antagonist, there are actually impositions or moral boundaries. You can be disruptive. You can take a character from paper and play it the way you want to. I have a lot of fun when I play an antagonist.”
The film will release in theatres in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22.
