Vishal Bharadwaj is all gung-ho about the release of his next film, Omkara. In fact, he got so involved in the film that he actually landed up singing a song in the film! The song is titled O Saathi Re and has been picturized on Ajay Devgan and Kareena Kapoor. The female playback singer is Shreya Ghosal.
Originally, a music director, Vishal decided to sing the song for its raw version. But finally it was thought that his voice suited the song, best. Vishal believes that no matter how realistic his films are, they must have music. In fact, he confesses that he is still a musician at heart! While Bharadwaj has composed the music of Omkara, Gulzar has written the lyrics.
An adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello, Omkara has a star cast comprising of Ajay Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Viveik Oberoi, Kareena Kapoor, Konkana Sen Sharma and Bipasha Basu. It is expected to hit theatres by June.
