Mumbai, Wednesday, September 28th: Yash Raj Films’ youth films studio Y-Films launched the music of it’s forthcoming release ‘Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge’ with a fantastic live performance by Raghu Dixit – one of India’s foremost desi rockstars who makes his Bollywood debut as music composer. The gig that is being live streamed on the web also showcased the 4 new leads of the film Saqib Saleem, Saba Azad, Nishant Dahiya & Tara D’Souza.
Speaking on the launch, Nupur Asthana, the director of Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge added, “Music & the internet are 2 things our audience can’t live without. Our film reflects that, so clearly our music launch had to do the same. Raghu’s rocked not just the songs, but also the background score of the film. And after hearing the album, your feet will want to fraaandship with your ears!”
The ‘Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge’ music album with lyrics by Anvita Dutt features 8 songs including an explosive dance mix of one of the songs by Nikhil Chinapa, an insane rap by a set of Chennai rappers called Machas with Attitude and the fresh new voices of Shefali Alvares, Joi Baruah, Aditi Singh Sharma, Ash King, Suraj Jagan besides Vishal Dadlani & Shilpa Rao. The songs including the ear-worm “Uh-Oh”, the nutty “Dheaon Dheaon” and the Raghu Dixit Project classic “Har Saans Mein” are already climbing up the charts. Watch out for some innovative contests, promotions and more in the coming days.
MFK is a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of social networking, Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge tells the story of two losers, Vishal & Preity who fake their identities online to woo two really hot people, Malvika & Rahul. Little do they know that the person they totally hate in real life is the same person, they’ve fallen in love with online. Making ‘MFK’, this season’s most screwed up love story.
The film marks the debut of 4 very talented actors, Saqib Saleem, Saba Azad, Tara D’Souza & Nishant Dahiya besides director, Nupur Asthana who was previously known for hugely popular cult TV shows like Hip Hip Hurray & Mahi Way.
