Farhan Saeed will soon be seen singing with Shreya Ghoshal in Bollywood’s next film Half Girlfriend.
The song ‘Thori Der’ was such a hit with Bollywood director Mohit Suri that the director again asked Farhan to redo it. Farhad Saeed will be turning the Punjabi track into a duet, for which he has paired up with Shreya Ghoshal.
According to Farhan, “‘Thori Der’ was released almost two years ago in Pakistan. Mohit loved it and asked me to recreate it for his movie Half Girlfriend. The original was in Punjabi, but we changed the lyrics to Urdu so a wider audience can understand it.”
‘Thori Der’ is a conventional love song, with the video showing Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor having a good time and falling for each other. The new version of the song has Shreya Ghoshal singing the first half of the song which sounds beautiful.
About working with Shreya, Farhan says, “Shreya is an absolute bliss to work with. She puts her soul in every song she sings, it’s great to pair up with her on one of my compositions.”
Farhan believes that art removes all other concerns.
“I think any form of art can blur boundaries, it’s just that we have to keep it separate from all that goes down between governments. Art is the best form of people-to-people contact.”
