Written by Kumaar, the song also features singer-composer Parichay, best known for his racy track “Aaj Phir Peene Ki Tamannah Hai” from Loveshhuda, and reggae artiste and musician Kardinal Offishall, who frequently collaborates with Akon. Nargis Fakhri features as a “fantasy chick” in the music video and has crooned the Punjabi chorus.
The duo filmed the video in Toronto, showcasing the city’s popular 1800-feet high communication’s tower and other amazing views of the city.
“To give the song an East-meets West flavour, the team brought mainstream Canadian rap-legend Kardinal on-board to record and film with Nargis and Parichay,”
says the source Nargis, who doesn’t speak Hindi or Punjabi, insisted that she didn’t want her accent to sound disrespectful, so she rehearsed extensively.
“For the main chorus line, she gave 100 takes because she couldn’t get the Punjabi lyrics right. She made sure to learn the correct pronunciation of every word from Parichay,”
adds the source.
