There’s a popular saying in the film land about the eternal superhero Rajinikanth that ‘There’s nothing that Rajni-can’t do’! Well, if at all there is someone who can match up to the antics of the larger-than-life Rajinikanth, then it has to be the one and only ‘Quickgun Murugan’, the very character whose trade-marked ‘Mind It’ shot into superlative fame, right from the word go! The fame and craze of Quickgun Murugan grew so much that even SRK couldn’t resist doing a take off on him in the smash-hit film Om Shanti Om.
For all those who religiously worship and follow Quickgun Murugan, this piece of news will surely shoot your spirits up in air. Fox Star Studios are now all set to produce a full-length film called Quickgun Murugan that will star the South-Indian hero Rajendra Prasad, while the rest of the cast are yet to be finalized. The film is about a superhero with the grit of Clint Eastwood and the glam of our very own South Indian superstars.
If that wasn’t enough, then, wait till you read this. In a first of an experiment of its kind, the world of Punjabi Bhangra and South Indian Tamil beats would amalgamate to give the listeners a new funky sound especially created for Quickgun Murugan called Tamil Bhangra. And the man behind this ‘fusion-confusion’ is none other than the Bhangra sensation Mika, who has especially created this sound for this film. After having the whole world croon to his balle-balle beats, Mika will now be seen mouthing lines like ‘Idli’, ‘Appam’, and ‘Sambar’ mixed with the robust Bhangra sounds instead of regular Punjabi words!
When we contacted Mika he confirms, “Yes it is true that for the first time we are trying something this innovative. When we finished recording the song, we couldn’t believe how funky it was sounding. It has turned out as a very catchy sound. And when it hits the radio and pubs it would become the new cool sound. Best part of the music video is that the south Indian cowboy would be grooving with me in the video. So even our dance is a mix of Bhangra and Tamil”.
We just cannot hold on to our curiosity to see Quickgun Murugan on the silver screens any longer, Mind It!
