Mumbai: Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" launched its special Eid song "Aaj ki party" on Thursday. Sung by Mika Singh, the song has already connected with the masses but it was Salman who was going to sing the song before Mika "stole" it from him.
"Mika has stolen my song and that's why this song is a sure shot hit. I tried a lot this time again to be the one who sings this song but Mika has beaten me again by bagging this song," quipped Salman.
However, this is not the first time that Mika has recorded a song which was originally intended to be sung by Salman. Salman had recorded his version of the superhit track "Jumme ki raat" from the film "Kick", but Mika's version was the one used in the film and it became a blockbuster track.
"Bhai (Salman) had sung 'Jumme ki raat' brilliantly and I told him to release the song in his voice. I was in Jakarta when I received a call from him at 12.30 in the night asking whether I said the truth about liking his version. And he told to hear it again and send my version," Mika said.
"When he complimented me for the song 'Hangover', I shocked him by saying: 'Wait, another song sung by me, 'Jumme Ki Raat', is coming up'," said Salman.
This sent Mika into a state of panic as he felt his version was scrapped from the film. He contacted T-Series head Bhushan Kumar asking what was his fault, only to realize that he was a victim of Salman's prank.
"Aaj Ki Party" is composed by Pritam and written by Shabbir Ahmed.
The film, releasing on the occasion of Eid, is produced by Salman and Rockline Venkatesh.
