Director Suneel Darshan is looking forward to his film release Shakalaka Boom Boom starring Upen Patel, Bobby Deol, Celina Jaitley and Kangana Ranaut. Reportedly the musical is the adapted version of Amadeus.
The director wants to ensure that this movie turns out to be the model-turned-actor's big break, which is why he has decided to shoot a special title track for Upen.
The song is going to cost the director a whopping Rs.2.5 crore! Here's why. The song will be shot in New York over four days and will feature a hundred girls flanking Upen! It has specially been choreographed by South African professional Tyrone Watkins. As sources have it, the director was very impressed by Watkin's musical act "Fusion" - a Bollywood love story.
The music is going to be composed by the inescapable king of pop Himesh Reshammiya, who claims that this song will outshine the "Aashiqui" track from 36 China Town. Darshan is also roping in a UK-based artist to sing the track. Inevitably, the track will be used as the first promotion of the movie. Justifying the cost of the song, Darshan said that quantity is not important, quality is the priority.
The director has put Bobby Deol on the map by casting him in his movies Barsaat and Dosti. We wonder if his efforts will bring fame to Upen as well! Shakalaka Boom Boom is slated to release on Valentines Day next year.
