Diljit, Gurdas collaborate
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.
