His next film may be an intense drama about wrestling, but Aamir Khan wants to have fun. The star, who wrapped up the shoot of Nitesh Tiwari's 'Dangal' recently, is now prepping up to sing a special track in the project. It won't be just another song, though — Aamir will turn rapper for this one.
Says a source working on the project, "Aamir is excited about doing a rap number. It is a peppy track that will be used in promotions. After recording it, he will shoot for the video."
Aamir made his singing debut with the cult tapori song, 'Aati Kya Khandala', in 'Ghulam' (1998), with co-star Rani Mukerji humming a few lines. He recited shayari in 'Sarfarosh' (1999) and 'Fanaa' (2006). The last time he lent his voice to a song was nine years ago, for 'Bum Bum Bole' in 'Taare Zameen Par', along with Shaan.
"But in this one, Aamir's is the only voice. Pritam has composed the song while Amitabh Bhattacharya is behind the lyrics," informs the source, adding, "When the makers broached the idea, Aamir was excited and gave it a thumbs-up. However, he wanted to rehearse before stepping into the recording studio."
Aamir has been prepping for the song at his residence over the last couple of weeks. "Pritam and Amitabh are part of his practice sessions. Mr Perfectionist wants the track to be nothing short of perfect and is enjoying trying his hand at rapping," the source says.
Aamir Khan's spokesperson confirmed the story.
