After winning the Dadasaheb Phalke award for his film Youngistaan, Jackky Bhagnani is now gearing up for his father Vashu Bhagnani’s production, Welcome 2 Karachi. But this time around, the actor has decided to go a step beyond and will also be lending his voice for one of the songs in the film.
Joining the likes of his contemporaries, the actor decided to experiment with his vocal skills this time. However, from what we hear, this was a last minute decision, where Jackky came to the rescue. Apparently, singer-rapper Badshah was supposed to rap for the song but he fell ill at the last moment. Music director Rochak Kohli was obviously upset with the situation and asked Jackky for help. The actor, despite being in Indore, decided to sing and even wrote a few lines along with Rochak for the song. Content with the way the song has turned out to be, Jackky further added that he enjoyed the process and despite not being trained, would love to take the mic again if he gets an opportunity.
Directed by Ashish R Mohan, Welcome 2 Karachi also stars Arshad Warsi and Lauren Gottlieb and it is slated to release on May 21, 2015.
