Talking about Rajinikanth, Shahrukh Khan told a leading daily, "Who isn't a fan of ‘The Rajinikanth'? I had met Honey Singh and Bhushan Kumar five days back and heard the song, which is titled Thalaivar Tribute . I found it very apt for Rajini sir and wanted to be a part of it as a fan of one of the greatest actors we have."
The lyrics of the song is very catchy and it goes like this- Moochon ko zara round ghuma ke Anna ke jaisa chashma lagake coconut mein lassi milake aajao sare mood bana ke.
