Actor Vinay Pathak has sung and shot for a song on Friday at Madh Island, for Sagar Bellary's sequel on the critically-acclaimed film, Bheja Fry. The film has finally been wrapped, and is under post-production.
Explains the director, "In the first part, Vinay's character, Bharat Bhushan, always wanted to be a singer. In the second outing, he finally achieves his dream. Moreover, Vinay has sung the song himself. He had recorded it in a studio earlier and was pretty excited about crooning. This is also the first time that he is singing in a film," (Mid Day).
The lyrics of the song runs, ' Jeevan Ye Saral Hai Seedhi Si Lakeer, Bahey Yeh Chal Chal Jaise Gangaji Ka Neer.' The music for Bheja Fry 2 has been scored by composer Sneha Khanvilkar. A few days ago there were quite a number of reports about the film crossing its budget, which delays the production, etc.
Says the director, "It was important to include those scenes for the film as we have shot a major chunk. These things were important for the film and needed to be added and now that it is finally done, we can incorporate it and begin the marketing."
He adds, "It is important that a producer give a tight budget. I like to work that way. Bheja Fry 2 is the producer's (Mukul Deora) first venture. So, he was an hands-on producer."
Bheja Fry also stars Minissha Lamba, Kay Kay Menon, Amole Gupte and Rukhsar. The film is slated for a June release.
