Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Pun­jabi singer and ac­tor Diljit Dosanjh (right) has recorded a song with sea­soned Pun­jabi mu­si­cian Gur­das Maan (inset), and he says he feels lucky to have got an op­por­tu­nity to col­lab­o­rate with the icon.

The song, ti­tled Ki Banu Duniya Da, is the re-worked ver­sion of Maan’s hit num­ber with the same name and will fea­ture in an up­com­ing tele­vi­sion show.

“I was very busy with my work, when I got a call about the song. But the mo­ment I heard about the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Maan sir, I was im­me­di­ately ready for it,” says Dosanjh.

“I was very ex­cited to record the song. Work­ing with Gur­das Maan was a dream come true for sure,” he adds.

Dosanjh, who was re­cently seen in the Pun­jabi film Sar­daar Ji, in­forms that the song was orig­i­nally writ­ten and com­posed in 1982. He adds that the track, ar­ranged by Jatin­der Shah, re­it­er­ates a mes­sage for the young gen­er­a­tion that speaks about not for­get­ting one’s roots in this age of moder­nity.

The singer says that he and Maan have kept the essence of the orig­i­nal song in­tact, but have re-worked on it and added some new el­e­ments.

“The charm of the orig­i­nal song can­not be matched. We have not copied it com­pletely. We have just made it in a new way. Like the orig­i­nal, the new ver­sion was also recorded in a live set­ting, which has kept the soul of the song alive,” says Dosanjh, who is do­ing a Bol­ly­wood film along­side Ka­reena Kapoor Khan.
