A Band of Boys create Ungli for the election season
Music video to feature Prachi Desai, Sonu Sood among others
After being out of the music scene since a couple of years, the A Band of Boys comprising of Siddhaarth Haldipur, Karan Oberoi, Sherrin Verghese, Chin2 Bhosle and Sudanshu Sharma (who is back in the team after leaving the band in 2004) have composed a song urging the youth to vote. The track, Don’t do the ungli, just get the ungli, will also feature singer Shibani Kashyap as the vocalist. “The song is a satire on the current ongoings in the country. We thought it makes sense to tackle a serious issue in a tongue in cheek fashion, while spreading a message at the same time,” stated Oberoi, adding that the song was recorded between 12 and 4 am in one night. The group will shoot a special video for this song, which will feature them along with Arbaaz Khan, Prachi Desai, Sonu Sood, Pooja Bedi, Mini Mathur among others.
