‘Udta Punjab’ director impressed by Kanika Kapoor’s track

“Udta Punjab” director Abhishek Chaubey says singer Kanika Kapoor has sung “Da da dasse” wonderfully for the film.

“Udta Punjab” highlights the issue of rampant drug abuse among the youth in Punjab. Shahid Kapoor is seen essaying the character of a high-on-drugs, long-haired rockstar Tommy Singh, who sings with glee and abuses with impunity.

It features Alia Bhatt as a migrant Bihari labourer, Kareena Kapoor Khan as a doctor who is determined to fight the illegal transportation of drugs, and Punjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh as a police officer.

After “Chitta ve” and “Ikk kudi”, the third song “Da da dasse” will be launched on Thursday. And the USP of the song is that all the four characters played by Shahid, Alia, Kareena and Diljit will be featured in the song.

The song, which has music by Amit Trivedi, describes the journey of each character.

“‘Udta Punjab’ is a new-age multi-starrer with an exciting cast. This song will showcase all four actors and will give a glimpse of their character’s journey in the film,” Chaubey said in a statement.

“Kanika has done a wonderful job with the song,” Chaubey added.

Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Productions, “Udta Punjab” is set to release on June 17.

Kanika had told IANS earlier that the song is “quite grungy”.
