Harbhajan Singh turns singer; teams up with composer Mithoon

Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is set to turn a professional singer. While Bhajji has had a brush with music in the past, he has teamed up with Bollywood composer Mithoon for a single. The said song will celebrate the contribution of real life heroes who have striven towards the welfare of the nation.

Harbhajan is currently undergoing training. Speaking about his new venture, the cricketer said, “I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I am happy that I am in safe hands. I am confident that I won't disappoint my fans.”

Composer Mithoon also saud in a statement, “It’s actually a thought that Harbhajan shared with me. We have been close friends for a while now and he has always expressed his interest in music. He wanted to do something to celebrate our national heritage and culture.”

“We were always contemplating on working together and were in talks of collaborating on a single since over a year now. This concept cropped up on his birthday and while there were many ideas exchanged, this particular idea appealed to us the most,” the ‘Tum Hi Ho’ composer added.

He also said, “I always believe music should address a higher purpose and collaborations of ideas should bring meaning to the fore.” The video will be shot across different states of India and will feature the real lives of common men who can be counted as the driving force of the country.

The song will be a mix of Hindi and English lyrics combined, and will premiere in December this year. With this single Harbhajan will be joining the band of cricketers like Dwayne Bravo, AB de Villiers, Brett Lee and Shane Watson, all of who also love music.
