MUMBAI: Our very own Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has now sung a song with India’s first transgender band, 6-Pack Band, for Yash Raj Films biggest feature flick for the year 2016, Sultan.
The video of the song ‘Raula Paye Gaya’ for Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer film Sultan has been released recently.
The song features subcontinent’s singing maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan with the unusual musical band that has been a talk of the town for quite some time particularly in India.
The spirit of the exceptional musical collaboration between Khan and the 6-Pack Band has been refreshing and fun.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has been a busy performer, making music not only in Pakistan but also across the border.
He has undoubtedly become a subcontinent big name that has given several hits in high-budgeted and highly-anticipated Bollywood films and with whom, both Pakistani and Indian stars feel honoured to collaborate.
The Pakistani legend is the lead singer in ‘Raula Paye Gaya’ along with 6-Pack’s Jagtap, Bhavika, Fida, Chandrika, Asha and Ravina.
They all were living tough lives after their families abandoned them before they entered the Indian music industry and wrote their own success stories.
Since then, the pop band, launched by the Y-films (a division of Yash Raj) in 2015, has already bagged the Cannes Grand Prix Glass Lion award at Cannes film festival and the Webby Award along with Y-films, the prestigious internet award for Public Service and Activism Category.
‘Hum Hain Happy’ (a rendition of Pharrell Williams’s song Happy) became their first song which went viral on the internet and earned them overnight fame and love.
The Y-Films representatives have always said that they created 6-Pack Band to help bridge the gender inequality in India.
