Hope `Jumme ki Raat` becomes youth anthem: Salman Khan

Zee Media Bureau

Mumbai: The much awaited Salman Khan starrer is going to release this Eid, and the first song is already out. `Jumme Ki Raat` released on Friday, creating a buzz amongst Khan`s fans.

Salman is hoping that the song becomes a youth anthem.

"We hope it will be the biggest youth anthem," he said to reporters. The song has been sung by the popular punjabi artist, Mika. The music for the movie has been given by Himmesh Reshammiya.

The actor also added that it was in no way connected to "Jumma chumma dede`, the song from 1991 film `Hum`. The chartbuster was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Kimi Katkar.

When asked is the song similar to `Jumma chumma dede`, Salman said: "I knew this...I knew somebody would come up with this question. Whenever this Amitabh Bachchan song comes on TV, I enjoy it. I watch the entire song."

But he added that `Jumme ki raat` "has been shot differently. The song has been choreographed by Ahmed Khan."

The superstar will be seen letting his hair down in the track.

Himesh Reshammiya has composed "Jumme ki raat" and he too feels that it`s not fair to compare his number with "Jumma".

He said `Jumma` came over 20 years ago and that his `Jumme ki raat` is a "different song".

Slated to release this Eid, ‘Kick’ also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
