Akon to sing KKR's new anthem?

Added by harini on Jun 07, 2012

Actor Shah Rukh Khan is ecstatic as his team Kolkata Knight Riders have won the Indian Premier League (IPL). The actor is planning on celebrating the victory with composing a new anthem for his team, which will be song by International Singer Akon.

The original anthem ‘Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo Re’ was sung by Vishal Dhadlani and composed by Vishal-Shekhar.

The new anthem will also be composed by Vishal-Shekhar itself.

“It will be a newer version of Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo Re,” said Vishal Dhadlani in an interview.

“The anthem is all about celebrations after a long wait of five years. It’s about victory which was finally witnessed,” he added.

The music director said that the song will be filled with Bengali culture.

Vishal Dhadlani confirmed that he and Shah Rukh Khan were in talks with Akon for the song but said that nothing is finalized as of yet.

“I am still not sure of any such development. I am in constant touch with Akon and so is SRK. Nothing has been finalized yet,” he said.

The song will be co-written by ‘Kahaani’ fame director Sujoy Ghosh.

“I think the word I would associate with Shah Rukh Khan and his team this time would be ‘Rongbaaj’. I loved SRK and the team’s attitude through the IPL. The way Team Kolkata won the finals; they have every right to put their collars up. And Rongbaaj perfectly fits the bill,” said Sujoy Ghosh.

Given that Akon’s ‘Chammak Challo’ till date remains a chartbuster hit, it will be surely interesting to see if Akon and Shah Rukh Khan can deliver another chartbuster.
