By HT

Mumbai, March 16 -- He has sung a number of hit songs like 'Sun raha hai' from Aashiqui 2 (2013) and 'Galliyan' from Ek Villain (2014). Now, we have found out that singer-composer Ankit Tiwari will soon face the camera in connection with a cricket tournament.

"It all started when he crooned the anthem - the lyrics of which have been penned by Manoj Muntashir - for the Lucknow team of a celebrity cricket tournament. When the owners and promoters of the team heard Ankit's song, they were hooked. They immediately decided to shoot a video featuring him. It has been directed by Anees Bazmee," says an insider.

While Ankit couldn't be reached for a comment, the team's owner, Nitin Kumar Mishra, says, "It feels great to have Ankit sing the anthem, and Aneesji direct the video that we are confident will become a rage."
