Starting the promotions of their upcoming film Rangoon on a musical note, actors Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan shot for an upcoming episode of Indian Idol 9. If the pictures are anything to by, the trio had a blast with the contestants and the judges.
From jamming with the participants to chatting with Annu Malik, Farah Khan and Sonu Nigam, the actors enjoyed their time on the singing reality show. Saif, who besides his acting talent is also known for playing guitar, strummed a few strings on the stage, much to the joy of the audience.
While the actor wore a casual look, a leather jacket with denims, his co-star, Kangana went traditional with an indigo blue saree. Shahid was seen wearing a light brown kurta with dhoti pants.
Prior to the cast’s appearance on the show, the film’s director Vishal Bhardwaj, along with singer wife Rekha, visited the set to promote it. Rekha, who has sung a version of the romantic track “Yeh Ishq Hai” in Rangoon, crooned a few lines with the contestants of Indian Idol.
Farah Khan shared a picture with the Bhardwaj couple on her Instagram account and captioned it, “#indianidol9 so good to hav the Bhardwaj couple.. rekha& vishal to promote #rangoon .. with Anumalik n sonunigam n moi..”
Later, she even posted her photo with Shahid Kapoor. “@shahidkapoor n i promoting serious cinema on #indianidol9 😜,” Farah wrote along the picture.
