Star appeal
Last year, the director Desai fell ill and passed away. But now the producer, Shailendra Singh has decided to complete the film and release it, riding on Hashmi's ample stardom to see the film obtain a sizeable audience. The five songs with Hashmi are composed by Pritam.
Singh says, "Emraan is a very busy and successful star. The fact that he is co-operating in making Shamin's dream come true for the sake of his wife and family shows his compassionate nature. And we feel music, Pritam and Emraan go hand in hand.".
