Superstar Akshay Kumar Pays Tribute To Legendary Musician Of The Century R.D. Burman In New Film ‘Khiladi 786’

Action hero Akshay Kumar will show his softer side in new film Khiladi 786 with a special tribute to legendary musician of the century R.D. Burman in the form of the upbeat track ‘Balma’.

R.D. Burman was an Indian film score composer, who is considered one of the seminal music directors of the Indian film industry.. ‘Pancham da’ as he was fondly referred to by industry insiders, served as an influence to the next generation of Indian music directors, and his songs continue to be popular in India even after his death.

The song ‘Balma’ in Khiladi 786 is composed by Himesh Reshammiya and sung by Sreeram and Shreya Ghoshal. Cinemagoers will notice the iconic R.D. Burman not just in the video but also in the composition. As well as the poignant elements of the song, Akshay is also seen in the video with uber-hot Polish-German model Claudia Ciesla and South Asian beauty Asin, who he has reunited with after their last big screen outing in Housefull 2.

Khiladi 786 marks Akshay’s return to the Khiladi franchise after 12 years. The all-action, stunt-laden film is produced by Akshay’s production company Hari Om Entertainment and Himesh Reshammiya’s company HR Musik, and once again teams the versatile Akshay with previous co-star Asin (Ghajini, Ready, Housefull 2) in this explosive Masala action-comedy film. Musical hero Himesh Reshammiya, who has co-written the film’s script with Kushal Bakshi and Bunty Rathore as well as penning the musical score, also makes a special appearance in the film. Khiladi 786 is directed by debutant Ashish R Mohan who previously assisted Rohit Shetty with hits Golmaal, Golmaal Returns, All the Best: Fun Begins and Golmaal 3.
Khiladi 786 releases on 7th December 2012.
