Mumbai: 'Pinjra', a new song by rapper Badshah in collaboration with Dr.Zeus and Jasmine Sandlas for 'MTV Spoken Word', revolves around the social evil of honour killings.

" 'Pinjra', in a subtle way, points towards honour killings that are quite prevalent in mainly the northern part of India," Badshah told IANS

'MTV Spoken Word' is a monthly feature on channel MTV. It features singles or a collaboration of artists composing a soundtrack based on a thought. One video that runs for the whole month is released, giving out the message that it is woven around.

The 'Abhi toh party shuru hui hai' rapper says 'Pinjra' is written beautifully.

"My father is from Haryana and my mother is from Punjab…so I am aware of the situation (of honour killings). Also, the song is beautifully written by Jasmine and I couldn't help but be in it and do my part," Badshah said.

This is the first time that Sandlas and the rapper have shared a platform. The 'Chull' rapper says she has a "unique texture" to her voice.

However, this is not the first time that the 'Proper patola' crooner has associated with 'MTV Spoken Word'. He had already done a song titled 'Bandook'. He feels the show has allowed him to experiment.

"It has been very special for me as it has allowed me to do something besides the commercial songs that I do. Also, the team is really amazing... I have a special bonding with them as they always allow me to be a part of something different," Badshah said.
