India, 20th March 2020– Mars Wrigley in collaboration with music entertainment company Songfest, today announced their second single from music series DOUBLEMINT® ‘FreshTake’.
The Hindi version ‘Tera Kya Hota’ is sung by Nakash Aziz and Geet Sagar whereas the Tamil version ‘Nene Lekunte’ is sung by L. V. Revanth and Rakendu Mouli and will be releasing today followed by a unique mash-up featuring both the versions. The music of both the tracks has been composed by Gaurav Dagaonkar while the music video is directed by famous dancer and choreographer Punit J. Pathak.
The dance-pop track with its bass-heavy hook line and sprightly melody is designed to tickle your funny bone. With an underlying theme of sociable relationships, the song imbibes ironic wit with its punchline ‘Main nahi hota to tera kya hota’
Well known singer, Nakash Aziz who has sung chartbusters such as ‘Saree Ke Fall’, ‘Jabra Fan’, ‘Gandi Baat’ and ‘Dhating Naach’ says, “Dance numbers are my forte and this is a song my fans are definitely going to love. The theme of friendship is also universal, and I feel this track shall be a friendship anthem in the days to come.”
L.V Revanth, a playback singer who has contributed close to 200 songs in South India after winning Indian Idol 9 and thereafter working on films like Baahubali says, “The idea of creating a song and a FreshTake in a regional language is fantastic. It was a great experience to work with Rakendu Mouli and Gaurav Dagaonkar. I found the song so catchy when I heard it, it took me less than an hour to record the full song in just a few takes!”
The music video will also feature Awez & Zaid Darbar, the country’s leading social media influencers and sons of music composer Ismail Darbar with whom Sanjay Leela Bhansali Bhansali has collaborated for several films in the past.
Expressing their excitement on their first-ever music video together, Awez & Zaid Darbar state, “Our fans always expect something new and different from us, and this is the first time we both are featuring in a music video together, which is super exciting. Apart from acting and dancing together, the FreshTake really for us is an opportunity to connect with our Telugu fans as well. Punit Pathak being the director and choreographer was an icing on the cake as we admire his work.”
Adding on further, Yogesh Tewari, Marketing Director, Mars Wrigley states, “After the successful launch of ‘Aadatein’, we are excited to bring to our consumers another anthem ‘Tera Kya Hota’ and its Telugu FreshTake – ‘Nene Lekunte’. DOUBLEMINT® is committed to our diverse consumers in India and FreshTake is a step in that direction that enables us to transcend the barriers of language with music that is enjoyed by consumers universally.
