Riteish Deshmukh & Vijender Singh rap out Mum vs Del war in ‘Bank Chor’ song

The makers of upcoming comedy flick ‘Bank Chor’ starring Riteish Deshmukh have released a new song titled ‘BC Rap Knockout: Mumbai vs Delhi’. It is a hilarious rap song that dwells on the argument between Delhiites and Mumbaikars.

The song has the film’s protagonist Riteish representing Mumbai, while Olympian boxer Vijender Singh makes a special appearance representing Delhi, as the duo battle it out taking potshots at each other’s city and mannerisms of its dwellers.

The lyrics are replete with different lingo used by the two cities like ‘oye’ to call out a person in Delhi and kissing sound made in Mumbai, including pyaaz-kanda, bhaag-phut, aloo-batata, roti-chapati. It also mentions about the landmarks like India Gate and Gateway of India, and the celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, and Virendra Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar.

It is a fun battle and will be enjoyed by not just the public of Mumbai and Delhi, but also people of all cities. The track composed by Shameer Tandon with lyricis penned by Varun Likhate is really epic! Mumbai gully rapper Naezy has lent his vocals for Riteish’s character, while Pardhaan has done the desi rapping for Vijender.

The song takes its inspiration from the movie’s characters – Riteish, who plays Mumbai’s Chinchpokli resident Champak, and his two sidekicks, Genda and Gulab, who hail from Delhi.

Directed by Bumpy, ‘Bank Chor’ has been produced under Y-Films, a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films. The movie revolves around three dim-wits who come to rob a bank. It also stars Vivek Oberoi and Rhea Chakraborty.

The film has adopted a self-deprecating promotional strategy with the trailer itself showing the film to be a spoof of YRF’s hit heist franchise ‘Dhoom’. The team even released some spoofs of famous posters including that of ‘Dangal’, ‘Tubelight’ and ‘The Dark Knight’, and Y-Films is advertising it as India’s stupidest comic thriller.

‘Bank Chor’ is slated for a release on June 16.
