- Mumbai, April 29 (IANS) Veteran actor Dharmendra seems to be getting younger with age. The 77-year-old has done a Punjabi rap for the title track of his upcoming film "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2". He has also sported a rockstar-look for it.
A glimpse of this song has already been incorporated in the movie's theatrical trailer, which was unveiled in March.
Sharib Sabri, who has composed the song with his brother Toshi, said the song is special.
"For the first time, we will be seeing Dharamji doing Punjabi rap on the screen. His rapper look, with the rings on his fingers, is really special in this song," he said.
The entire cast of the film -- Dharmendra's sons Sunny and Bobby Deol, as well actors Neha Sharma, Kristina Akheeva and Annu Kapoor -- will be part of this song, composed by Sharib and Toshi and choreographed by Caesar Gonsalves, said a statement.
Neha says the veteran star's energy and enthusiasm on the set were age-defying.
"Dharamji was the youngest Deol on the sets during the making of this song. The coolest things to do were given to him. He has these hot ladies sitting around him in the video, which is a cute moment," she said.
The title track of "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" will be released in May, while the film will hit the screens June 7.
For the original 2011 film "Yamla Pagla Deewana", Dharmendra had done energetic moves in the song "Tinku jiya".
