Mumbai, Apr 8 (PTI) For the first time in his career, filmmaker Sudhir Mishra has done rap for his upcoming film “Daas Dev”.

The makers of “Daas Dev” will be unveiling a quirky video tomorrow that sums up the essence of the film through the rap done by Mishra, in a narrating fashion. The video will also feature Saurabh Shukla, who plays a pivotal role in the film.

“The rap describes the process of how the story came about in my head. I was slightly reluctant to do a rap but the whole unit convinced me and turns out it wasn’t such a bad idea.

“Saurabh is a dear friend and a par excellence actor. I have directed him in many films and this was a pleasant change to share screen space with him,” Mishra told PTI.

The two-minute long video will have Mishra and Shukla narrate the story of “Daas Dev” in the foreground and visual from the film will keep flying past in the backdrop.

Both the men don a stylised look and wear poker-faced expressions throughout the video. Also, props like a vintage red car and a red Lambretta scooter will also be seen in the video.

The film starring Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Rahul Bhat and Vineet Singh, explores the themes of power, love and addiction.

Set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh, “Daas Dev” is slated to be released on April 20.
