Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish 3 is the talk of the nation, as it’s the third movie in the superhero series. While the shooting of the film is on, the makers are also working in full swing with respect to the music of the film. Rajesh Roshan, who always composes music for his brother Rakesh Roshan’s films, recently recorded a song for Krrish 3. The song in question is called ‘God Allah Bhagwan’ and is sung by Sony Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal with lyrics by Sameer. The song apparently has all it takes to become a chartbuster.
Says Rakesh Roshan, “Right now we have just recorded the song. In fact it’s really too soon to say anything about the picturisation in the film. All I can say is that Sameer has given the lyrics to the song with Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal on vocals while the music is being done by Rajesh Roshan.”
