Ever since the news that French pop star Abbas Hasan is collaborating with Shahrukh Khan’s official DJ, DJ Khushi, came out, there has been much buzz and excitement surrounding it. And why not? After all, Abbas is one of the hottest Asian stars of the international desi music scene coming together with Bollywood’s most popular DJ.
The released single is a remix of Abbas’ number 1 track Jaan ke Vaaste. The video now officially released worldwide on music websites and portals such as iTunes, Dailymotion and SoundCloud will soon go on air on all leading local TV channels.
“This song was really special to me when I first wrote it. It’s amazing to see it’s only just getting discovered in India and elsewhere in Asia. It’s exciting to reinvent it for the Indian club scene and it couldn’t be with anyone more in tune with what’s hot now. DJ Khushi is the ultimate party king in Bollywood,” says Abbas about Jaan Ke Vaaste.
Freshly back in the UK from shooting in Paris, speaking about all the exciting Bollywood rumours, Abbas said, “I’m just getting warmed up. My fans are in for some crazy surprises. Expect the unexpected!” That can certainly mean anything when considering the young star has already worked with a Filmfare Award-winning director!
Abbas is no stranger to headlines. His appearances at high profile international events such as Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA) in Vancouver, Fashion Parade London and IIFA and his tour with Bollywood biggies Shahrukh Khan, Shreya Ghoshal and Priyanka Chopra made him a regular to be featured in news columns and on magazine covers. From rubbing shoulders with the likes of Elton John and Freida Pinto, to having won this year’s “Artist of the Year” Award in Toronto, we should expect no less than great music from Abbas.
DJ Khushi, best known for being Shahrukh Khan’s official DJ, has remixed tracks for blockbusters like Student of the Year, Aashiqui 2, Agneepath, Ra One and Desi Boyz. He is a regular performer at Bollywood events such as Filmfare, Zee Cine Awards, etc. Abbas and DJ Khushi toured Dubai together and were both involved with TOIFA.
