Popular Punjabi singer Mika Singh lent his voice to the song Bhootni in the new Bollywood release Roohi. He says he ended up laughing a lot while recording the track.
“God bless (composers) Sachin-Jigar and (lyricist) Amitabh Bhattacharya ji for making such an awesome song. I was laughing while recording it and I’m waiting to know how listeners react to it. It is a very fresh love song dedicated to a ghost,” Mika said
He added: “I’m amazed and glad that the makers thought they should have a song for this situation. I hope the listeners enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it.”
Bhootni is a comic song that is central to the narrative of the horror-comedy. The song features Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma and it is about a man (Varun), who is head over heels in love with a ghost (Janhvi). The highlights of the song are Varun trying to woo a ghost and the hilarious lyrics.
Sachin-Jigar said: “With Bhootni, we knew the impact we wanted to make. Not very often are you tasked to make a song for a situation in which a man is beguiled by a ghost.”
They added: “It was so much fun recording this song. Mika has delivered Bhootni in his signature care-free style of singing. We’re glad to have created such a unique song.”
