Sabri brothers Toshi and Sharib record 21-minute song

Mumbai: Singer-composer Toshi Sabri and his brother Sharib have worked on a new, 21 minute song for the movie ‘Mastaan’, which brings together father-son Naseerudin Shah and Vivaan.

The love song, titled ‘Mora man mane na’, took seven days of non-stop singing and recording at Toshi`s Sound Of Music studio in Versova Mumbai. So far the song`s scratch version has been done by dummy voices.

However, Toshi intends to get the legendary Lata Mangeshkar to sing the 21-minute song, perhaps the longest ever in Bollywood.

"We never set out to create such a long song. We just set out on a journey on an unknown highway where our protagonist needed to make a self-searching voyage through his heart," said Toshi.

"My brother and I just went on recording without counting the minutes. It`s turned into a 21-minute song," he added.

Toshi and Sharib, who hail from a musical family in Rajasthan, were noticed in music reality shows on the small screen. Toshi says he has gone through rough times.

"It hasn`t been an easy journey for me. I`ve gone through two near brushes with death. I was attacked by hoodlums and then I was in a road accident.

"I guess God wanted me to go through those life-changing experiences so that one day I could create something that would redefine a film song," he said.
