Aamir Khan and the whole ‘PK’ team has been able to generate enough curiosity regarding their movie till now and the ensemble cast and crew continues to do it further. Aamir Khan launched the first song of the movie with much aplomb in Noida on November 8 with the director of the movie Rajkumar Hirani and singer Swaroop Khan in attendance.
As can be seen, the track is a peppy Rajasthani number and features a dramatic Sanjay Dutt and a confused Aamir Khan. Aamir has apparently ‘lost his memory’ and is mistaking men with women (or vice versa) and a dramatic Dutt is calling the poor confused chap a ‘tharki chokro’.
Penned by Swanand Kirkire and composed by Ajay and Atul, the song is crooned by ‘Indian Idol 5’ contestant Swaroop Khan. He shot to fame during the season because of his voice quality and range.
The song launch that happened yesterday had a very ecstatic and excited Swaroop Khan thanking his stars that he got a chance to sing in an Aamir Khan movie. Raju Hirani later tweeted the link of the song.

Aamir was at his cordial best, joking and laughing with Hirani and obliging the shutterbugs, while his co-stars in the movie – Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput were a notable absence. Also missed at the event by the team and media was Sanjay Dutt who is quite fun to watch in the song.
Talking more about the song, ‘Tharki Chhokro’ is distinct and instantly connects may be due to the foot tapping music, all credits to Ajay-Atul. Goes without saying, the duo of Aamir and Sanjay is upping the fun quotient. Swaroop Khan has put in his heart and soul into the song.
The movie is slated to hit the theatres on December 19.
