Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur-starrer Ok Jaanu will pay a tribute to Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman by recreating the magic of music-maestro’s 1998 track ‘Humma Humma’ in the film.
Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is one of the producers on the film, took to Twitter to reveal that rapper Badshah has recreated the popular track now called ‘The Humma Song’.
“When Badshah pays a tribute to AR Rahman with #thehummasong…,” Karan wrote.
Shraddha and Aditya will be seen shaking a leg to the song which is scheduled to release on Thursday. Music composer Tanishk Bagchi and Badshah have conceptualised the track with the latter rapping in it too. Vaibhavi Merchant has done the choreography.
Karan further thanked Badshah for doing a great job and said, “Thanks Badshah for recreating the magic.”

Badshah is hopeful of a positive audience reaction for the song. “There are few elements of the original song that we have retained. Those who have heard it have liked it, the ultimate verdict is of the audience, I am hoping for a positive feedback,” Badshah said.
A few days back Karan tweeted the first look of the movie and shared, “You have a date with unabashed and unapologetic LOVE on the 13th of Jan!! ADITYA ROY KAPUR and SHRADDHA KAPOOR IN #OkJaanu.” The first poster has both Aditya and Shraddha hugging each other, with Mumbai’s Marine drive forming the backdrop.
