After the theatrical trailer caused a stir hitting over 1 million views in just two days, Eros International and Illuminati Films have released the first song promo from Homi Adajani’s Cocktail.
‘Tumhi Ho Bandhu’ sees the shy Meera (Diana Penty), who dances only when she is all by herself, burn the dance floor at a beach party after having a drink. Meera is a good dancer but never shows it. However, she lets her hair down and dances away which comes as a surprise to Guatam (Saif Ali Khan) and Veronica (Deepika Padukone).
The song has been composed by Pritam and is sung by Neeraj Shridhar and Kavita Seth. It was extensively shot in Cape Town on Maidens Cove beach in December last year. The promo also features some scenes of Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan at Battersea Park and The Grand nightclub.
Speaking about the song, Homi Adajania told the Hindustan Times: “Everyone had such a blast shooting in Cape Town, that soon the word spread and friends of the local crew were trickling into the sets to join the party. By the end of it, our new South African friends were singing the song without understanding a word of what was being said.”
The film is about love, friendship and a mixture of fun and enjoyment. It’s full of life, energy and this song adds to the charm.
Cocktail is set to release on July 2012.
