Widely acclaimed as the first female rapper, Hard Kaur turned into a Bollywood music director with her solo album ‘P.L.A.Y.’ earlier this year. She has composed the title track of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘The Shaukeens’, a track that has all the hallmarks of a Hard Kaur song.
With chartbusters like Ek Glassy, Move Your Body, and Char Baj Gaye to her credit, the rapper-turned-music director is enjoying her new role in the industry. “I feel like my art is getting magnified. I’m rediscovering music from so many different angles, it is inspiring me all over again,” says the lady. “As a rapper, you’re more concerned with the lyrics and the way they’re sung. When you produce, there’s so much more to music that you discover!”
Speaking about her latest composition Aashiq Mizaaj for ‘The Shaukeens’, the artiste said, “I was so excited about this one that I didn’t want to let anyone else sing it. But then I thought of Aman (Trikha) and figured his voice would do it more justice than mine.” The song begins with Hard Kaur rapping the first stanza in a low murmur and Aman Trikha picks up the pace as the song progresses.
Aashiq Mizaaj is the title track of ‘The Shaukeens’, featuring Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra as they are shown around Mauritius by the incredibly sexy Lisa Haydon. The three are seen at their comical best as they try to get her attention.
‘The Shaukeens’ is a remake of 1982 comedy movie ‘Shaukeen’ directed by Basu Chatterjee. It stars Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon along with Akshay Kumar in his most special appearance. Produced by Cine1 Studios, Cape Of Good Films & Ashwin Varde Productions and directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film is set to release on November 7, 2014.
