The first song from Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala is out. Titled “Don’t Be Shy”, the song is a remixed version of Dr Zeus’ hit dance number of the same name.
While the song opens with dark-skinned Bhumi Pednekar grooving alongside Ayushmann, he soon leaves her to be with fair-skinned Tik Tok star Pari, played by Yami Gautam in the film. While dancing with Yami, Ayushmann’s wig falls off, which leads to Pari leaving him. But, Ayushmann is in no mood of slowing down and continues to dance until the screen fades to black.
Sung by Badshah and Shalmali Kholgade, with music by Sachin-Jigar, “Don’t Be Shy” is sure to do the rounds this festive season.
Ayushmann also shared the song on his official Instagram handle. He wrote, “If you got it, don’t be shy, just flaunt it! The wait is over!#DontBeShy song out now!”
Yami recently spoke about creating a personal account on Tik Tok as part of her preparation process.
“It is important that people come and watch my character in the film and not the person who I am. I invested wholeheartedly in absorbing every shade of this character so that people are drawn to her. I wanted to nail every nuance — from her nazakat to the small town diction. Watching Tik Tok videos helped me with the groundwork. Of course, the graph of character is different, but I felt the first round of learning came from being on the app. It was an important process for me.”She told news agency IANS.
Bala also features Seema Pahwa, Jaaved Jaaferi and Saurabh Shukla in pivotal roles.
The film also landed into legal trouble over its similarities with another film around the same concept, Ujda Chaman.
Directed by Amar Kaushik, Bala is slated to release on 7 November 2019.
