Jabra, the multi lingual anthem from Yash Raj Films’ forthcoming film FAN, has rocked Indian music charts all over India and its appeal is no less with NRI listeners and Bollywood movie buffs worldwide! To exponentially expand reach and add to this unique Shah Rukh Khan film’s global appeal, the Fan anthem has been recorded in Arabic by leading music artist, Grini. Now the Jabra groove will ring across music players and radio stations in Arabic nations too. Don’t be surprised if you hear this catchy number in a taxi on the streets of Dubai or Riyadh!
This is not the first time that YRF has utilized popular global singers for their films. YRF Studio is a trendsetter in this sphere, having launched a Hindi song dubbed in Thai, Spanish, and Arabic, with Dhoom 3 (Dhoom Machale by Naya). A thumping track, this one became a chart buster across Arabic music stations and still plays in the region. To enhance the film Fan’s value among Arabic speaking audiences, YRF has collaborated with Platinum Records to create the Arabic version with Grini.
The strategic move apart, this Arabic Jabra Fan anthem once again highlights the immense popularity that Shah Rukh Khan enjoys worldwide. In many international markets, he defines the ultimate matinee idol, over and above Hollywood’s leading names.
A unique concept at heart and with the best contemporary filmmaking techniques in place, Fan promises to break new ground in international markets and add to Bollywood’s overall appeal in the world!
Produced by YRF and directed by Maneesh Sharma, Shah Rukh Khan’s film Fan is slated to release in theaters on April 15, 2016.
