Rapper Badshah sure knows how to promote a new song. On Thursday, he shared a mind-blowing mash-up video by overlaying his new track, Baawla, on a scene from the song Channa Mereya song featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. In the video, a solemn Ranbir is singing and dancing while Anushka, who is dressed as a bride in the scene, stands dazed. The song is from Karan Johar’s hit movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
In the mash-up, when Ranbir lifts his hands and turns about, Badshah’s lines from Baawla are played. Every beat is in step with Ranbir’s moves and when the word Ghoom comes, he is seen twirling, holding the loose ends of his pagri in one hand and a mic in the other.
