Ali Zafar to do item song in 'Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive'
Ali Zafar will be making a special appearance in a song titled 'Six Pack Abs'.
Karachi: If you were upset with Ali Zafar's absence from the sequel of 'Tere Bin Laden,' then hold your breath as the Pakistani actor will be there in the flick, this time just in a cameo.
The 35-year-old singer-turned-actor will be making a special appearance in a song titled 'Six Pack Abs', reports the Express Tribune.
In a recent interview, Ali recalled all the hard work he put in to get his new buff frame and said, "I had a strict schedule of three months to get into shape. I was off carbs and sugar and worked out twice a day before shooting kicked off. After we wrapped up, I binged on ice cream and 'parathas' for a month!"
He added that he was given the task of composing, writing and singing the song and claimed that the song is like an interesting take on the item number concept and the trend of acquiring abs to ensure a hit song.
The 'Total Syappa' star also said that he lent the track a vintage Bollywood feel with a modern hook and quirky lyrics.
Further, talking about not playing the lead role in, 'Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive,' Zafar said that 'Tere Bin Laden' and the makers of the flick are close to his heart as it is like they made history with the first film of their careers.
He added, "When the sequel came underway, Abhishek (the director) and I were excited about it but as an actor I wanted to try something challenging, so he decided to just cast me in this interesting number."
The flick that stars Manish Paul will hit the theaters on February 19.
