Actor-filmmaker-singer Farhan Akhtar has sung the first duet of his career, and that too for his sister’s forthcoming film “Dil Dhadakne Do”. Accompanying him on the mike is actress-singer Priyanka Chopra.
Confirming the exciting combination, Farhan said: “Yes, Priyanka and I have sung a duet in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’.”
So far, Farhan has only rendered solo songs in “Rock On!!”, “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” and “Shaadi Ke Side Effects”.
According to sources, the duo has sung a “smouldering smoky love ballad steeped in nostalgia and longing”.
Needless to say the song has been filmed on Farhan and Priyanka, as neither actor-turned-singer is willing to playback for other actors.
“I don’t see myself giving voice to other actors. It just doesn’t work for me.”
As for Priyanka, one has ample reason to believe she wouldn’t sing for other heroines…Not when the new breed of female actors are most eager to give voice to their own songs: Alia Bhatt in “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” and “Highway” and Shraddha Kapoor in “Ek Villain”.
