The British boy band The Vamps first got a glimpse of Indian showbiz via a collaboration with Vishal-Shekhar for ‘Beliya’.
The Vamps recently collaborated with the Bollywood composer duo Vishal and Shekhar, for the single.
The song was released on 16 August on YouTube. It has Vishal and Shekhar jamming with the UK band consisting of Connor Ball, Tristan Evans, James McVey and Brad Simpson.
The boy band also sang the Hindi lines from the song ‘Jaisa Mein Hu Waisi Hai Tu.’
Vishal Dedlani who is leading vocalist of Indian Rock band Pentagram said that India does not lack band culture but there is a need to promote it to mainstream.
James McVey, on behalf of the band, says they instantly fell in love with the glitzy world of Bollywood, with superstar Shah Rukh Khan taking their heart away.
“We are big fans of Bollywood. We always see happiness and colour in the dances, the sets are very elaborate and SRK is our favourite,” McVey said.
“Before we visited India for first time, we had no clue about our fan following there. We were extremely overwhelmed seeing our fans waiting for hours at the airport when we arrived. We loved the whole experience and can’t wait to come back,” Ball said.- CINEWS
