Thugs of Hindostan marks Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s first project together. The first song, titled Vashmalle, has now been released featuring their characters, Firangi Mallah and Khudabaksh Azad in an upbeat celebratory occasion which yet again reminds us of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
The song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani, with music by Ajay-Atul and lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The video has been choreographed by the very talented, Prabhudeva.
The director of the film, Vijay Krishna Acharya, said in a statement, “It is amazing that we could write a suitable moment in the film that sees these two icons of Indian cinema shake a leg with each other and the song will stand out because of their infectious energy and camaraderie. The song presents Mr. Bachchan and Aamir Khan in the mood to celebrate. I have to reveal, the sequence will show them getting drunk during the celebrations and then breaking out to dance on this high energy number. It is a priceless moment that we have captured in Thugs of Hindostan.”
Aamir, who tweeted the song, said that he had a ball. “Was so excited to do a song with Mr Bachchan, that for the 1st time in my career I have enjoyed dancing!” he wrote.
