Shah Rukh Khan and Ekta Kapoor may not be the best of friends but now they have a Baby Doll in common. Kanika Kapoor, who sang the Ragini MMS 2 chartbuster, has been roped in to lend her voice for SRK’s Happy New Year. The film opens with this song, to be shot in a dingy bar and introduces the film’s leading lady, Deepika Padukone.
Revealed a source from the film’s production, “Both SRK and Farah were impressed with the way Baby Doll escalated the fortunes of Ekta’s horrex. However, instead of the Meet Brothers, Kanika will be collaborating with Dr. Zeus this time.”
Like with Sunny Leone in the Ragini sequel, Deepika who plays a bar dancer in Happy New Year, is the focal point of the song. SRK also intends to shoot a remix version with Kanika, like he did in Lungi Dance with Honey Singh in Chennai Express.
When contacted, Kanika confirmed the story saying, “I can assure you that this song will be a bigger hit than Baby Doll. It’s something that has never been attempted before. People are bored with the same type of songs, they are looking for a change and this will be it!” The film which also features, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah is set for a Diwali release.
