is gaining popularity in the club of music lovers. This new song of Atif Aslam is a part of the upcoming Indian Film “Race 2” which is a sequel to Race 1 which was released in 2008. The film is directed by Abbas-Mastan.
The soundtrack of this movie is given by Pritam Chakraborty and this particular song is a duet sung by Atif Aslam along with the girl with melodious voice, “Sunidhi Chohan”.
Race 2 is planned to be released on January 25, 2013. The cast of the film includes Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Pudokone, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez and Amisha Patel. Bipasha Basu is going to give a cameo appearance in the film and she reprises her role of Sonia from Race 1.
The film has four songs out of which the first duet by Atif Aslam and Sunidhi Chohan has already been released. This is a romantic song which is filmed on Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Pudokone. The critics are anticipating the sound track of this film to make its place amongst the other newly released music of the movies including Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” and Ajay Devgan’s “Son of Sardar”.
The other casting options for Race 2 were Kareena Kapoor against Saif Ali Khan and Priyanka Chopra against John Abraham, but as Kareena did not want to be paired with Saif again to avoid repetition, she was replaced with Deepkia. On the other hand, Priyanka had some issues with dates, so she could not sign the film either. Later, the role was offered to Sonakshi Sinha who also got a clash of dates of shooting of her other project, “Dabang-2” with that of Race 2. So, finally the role was accepted and done by Ameesha Patel pairing with Anil Kapoor.
