The Rock Anthem of the year is here! ‘Shaamat’ from the film ‘Ek Villain Returns’ has just been released and the fans are going absolutely nuts over it. Tara Sutaria kills it with her brilliant vocals alongside Ankit Tiwari and her rockstar performance. This is the first time Tara has sung for a film and when asked, Tara had a lot of fun both singing and filming it. She said “It’s been such an unusual experience for me and this feeling is incomparable as Shaamat marks my debut in singing for the film. Apart from the making process of the song, I had a great experience shooting with Arjun. He is a gem both on and off set – this song was the beginning of the film shoot for us and also the beginning of a wonderful equation we’ve built over the last two years in making the film.
Shaamat is also the song that became the seed for Tara Sutaria and Arjun Kapoor’s strong friendship. Arjun said “It was our first real interaction. On the day of shooting Shaamat, Tara and I really bonded over that song, we became very very close.” He added “When you see the song you will see an equation develop on camera which was also developing off-camera”.
Their friendship grew so beautifully that Arjun Kapoor even stayed back to share Tara’s excitement during a stunt. He recollects “There’s a visual where Tara is put on a harness and she has to be ziplined onto the stage. It was a night shoot and Tara was excited and nervous about doing the zipline visual. I had very few shots but we all ended up staying back because we all wanted to see Tara perform it. Of course she managed to do it very well and I ended up shooting a video of it on my phone and showing it to her later. It was so much fun watching her shoot her first stunt being on the harness while performing as a rockstar and being there for her.” He also mentioned how the cast had a lot of fun being in Goa for the shoot and getting to bond with the members.
Starring John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani, and Tara Sutaria, Ek Villain Returns will release worldwide on 29th July 2022. The movie is directed by Mohit Suri and jointly produced by T-Series and Balaji Telefilms.
