That Farhan Akhtar is a multi-talented personality is not a hidden fact. Not only does he write, direct, produce or act in films, he occasionally also gives playback for a few songs in his movies. In the past, he has given vocals for song in the National Award winning production, Rock On, and even Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara along with other songs like “Pichle Saat Dino Mein”, “Sinbad the Sailor” and “Tum Hi Ho”. He also sung “Jaago”, “You Know What I Mean”, “Manzar Naya,” and “Woh Jahaan” with Shraddha Kapoor, to name a few. Well, if the latest reports by Mirror is to be believed, the 44-year old, actor-director-producer, has crooned for South star Mahesh Babu in his forthcoming political thriller, titled, Bharat Ane Nenu. This also happens to be his first Telugu song, which is titled. ‘I Don’t Know”.
The leading tabloid quoted a source close to Farhan as saying that eminent South Indian, composer-lyricist-director, Devi Sri Prasad, who has also given the music for the recently released Ram Charan-Samantha Akkineni starrer Rangasthalam, has composed the music for the song that features Mahesh Babu and Kiaara Advani, the film’s lead pair. The song is also reportedly picturised in Spain. “It is a fastpaced, catchy number and will introduce Mahesh Babu’s character in the film. The makers have also shot a behindthe- scenes video with Farhan at the recording studio which will be released separately,” the source said. Helmed by Koratala Siva, Bharat Ane Nenu is a political thriller that is slated to release on April 20.
What fans may not know is that Farhan and Mahesh Babu have been good friends since many years now and the latter has lent his voice for Farhan’s initiative, reciting the MARD poem in Telugu, in the past. Meanwhile, Farhan’s last production, Fukrey Returns that released in December last year was a sleeper hit, while Mahesh Babu’s last film, Srimanthudu holds the record for being the biggest Telugu film at the box-office after the Baahubali franchise. Now that’s commendable! No wonder that he is one of the biggest stars in South India today.
