New Delhi, April 19 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor has shot a promotional video for kids’ film ‘Chillar Party’, directed by Vikas Bahl.
He plays himself in the video, but his look is that of a tapori (hoodlum) – inspired by one of the characters in the film.
The song has a very Mumbai feel and is a mix of street instruments, local voices and dialect. It has been sung by music composer Amit Trivedi and his mother, while choreographers Bosco-Caeser have mixed street dancing with contemporary style for it.
‘Ranbir Kapoor saw the film and loved it. That’s when we requested him if he would do an item song for the kids and he loved the idea, and readily agreed,’ said a source from the production unit.
‘Chillar Party’ is set for a May release.

Gujarati accent troubles Preeti Desai
London-based model-actress Preeti Desai, who is making her Bollywood debut with ‘Shor In The City’, says she is more troubled by her Gujarati accent rather than her British one.
‘As soon as I came to India, I started working on my Hindi. I can speak Hindi, but with an accent – not so much of an English accent, but more of a Gujarati accent,’ said Preeti.
She is now taking lessons to improve her chances of getting work in the Hindi film industry.
‘I’m taking diction lessons and trying to brush up my Hindi,’ she said.
‘Shor In The City’ will release April 29.
