First Class: Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani dance in new Kalank song
The dance number is composed by Pritam and sung by Arijit Singh
Varun Dhawan launched the second song from his upcoming film, Kalank. Titled First Class, the dance number is composed by Pritam and sung by Arijit Singh. The lyrics are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the choreography is done by Remo D’Souza. The song introduces Varun’s character, Zafar, who is seen dancing with Kiara Advani.
Explaining the thought behind First Class, Pritam said, “The character is being introduced to the audience; he talks about a lot of things he feels, sees and experiences around him, but believes ‘sab first class hai.’ That’s how we got the title of the song. While I can’t reveal the relevance of this number in the plot, I can just say that it takes the narrative ahead.”
On composing a dance number for Varun, Pritam added, “Varun loves songs that have a fun vibe. In this case, he also liked the kind of sound we created. It’s that rare mix of Indian instruments — we’ve emphasised on using live dholkis and dhols. It actually felt like I was a composer in the Partition era because I was recording the sound with so many live instrumentalists."
Kalank is a Partition drama set in the 1940s starring Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Madhuri Dixit.
Directed by Abhishek Varman, the film is produced Dharma Productions and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and presented by Fox Star Studios. Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment film. Kalank is scheduled for release on April 17.
