Preity Zinta, Shah Rukh Khan and Akhay Kumar are all doing their bit to glam up their respective IPL teams. But when it comes to Bollywood giving a glam push to cricket, all eyes were on Mumbai Indians – the team of the city where India’s entertainment mecca is and which is being backed by Mr Moneybags Mukesh Ambani. And the Mumbai team has not disappointed anybody. 


It is being represented by Hrithik Roshan, who will also shake a leg in its promotional video. The star studded promotional video will feature many people from the industry, along with the cricketers of course. Says Anu Malek, who is composing the song, “I have composed the music for the team song. Sonu Nigam, Kunal Ganjawala, Udit Narayan and I have sung the song. Javed Akhtar saab has written the lyrics.” 


The video will feature all the 11 cricketers of the team, which means that you will see Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Robin Uthappa, Shaun Pollock and the rest of the team sporting their uniforms and posing while Hrithik does what he is best at – dancing! A bevy of others actors and actresses are also being roped in to give a further push to this song. 


“The lyrics of this song are young, spirited and sound like an anthem. The music has been composed in such a way that it feels like you are singing for the nation,” explains Javed Akhtar. It is rumoured that Ashutosh Gowariker, fresh from directing Jodhaa Akbar, will again helm this Hrithik song.
