Race, one of the hottest films this season, is around three weeks away from its release. Still, it's producers TIPS and composer Pritam are leaving no stones unturned to ensure that the film not just stays in news but also take one of the biggest ever openings at the Box Office.
To keep the film hot in circulation and add on to the immense hype that this action/thriller has been generating, the makers have decided to add on a new song in Race. The song is special since it features Saif Ali Khan and now hot-n-happening Katrina Kaif who was the only leading lady to have enjoyed a cent percent record last year (Namastey London, Apne, Partner and Welcome). Moreover, the title of the song is nothing less than inviting as it reads - 'Sexy Lady'.
As per the film's producer Ramesh Taurani (of TIPS), the song was added as it was found to be a good replacement for 'Mujhpe To Jaado' which was yet to be shot. "We are thrilled with the great response to the title song 'Race Sanson Ki', 'Pehli Nazar Mein' and 'Zara Zara Touch Me'. We wanted to keep the momentum going. When Pritam made us hear the tune of 'Sexy Lady', we knew that this was the song for the film," confirms Ramesh Taurani.
Adds Pritam, "'Mujhpe To Jadoo' was anyways waiting to be picturized. Since Abbas-Mustan also felt that 'Sexy Lady' could be a good replacement, everyone was in consensus with the decision.
Says a confident Taurani, "We are quite happy with the way Race is leading up to it's March 21 release. The songs are doing quite well and are leading the charts all over. We would begin unleashing the talkie promos early March. They would be a mix of action and drama which forms the USP of the film."
Meanwhile shooting of 'Sexy Lady' is currently on and would be wrapped up in quick time so that the song is on air before the release of the film. Moreover, there won't be much wait for the new edition of the music album of Race to arrive too. By first week of March, latest addition 'Sexy Lady' is expected to be a part of the newer lots of Race that would be out on stands.
