Some of the biggest names from the film industry would be seen paying tribute to Michael Jackson on his 51st birthday. Come 29th of August and Shah Rukh Khan, Vishal and Shekhar, Shahid Kapoor, Shankar Mahadevan, Prabhu Deva, Priyanka Chopra and Yuvraj Singh amongst others would be featuring in a music video titled ‘Make it Large- A tribute to Michael Jackson’.
It was Shah Rukh Khan’s idea to get a tribute rolling for the music legend who passed away on 25th June this year.
Says Vishal Dadlani of Vishal-Shekhar duo, “The entire world was upset about his demise and so were Shekhar (Ravjiani) and I. We happened to meet Shah Rukh and he also expressed his thought about doing something that would be befitting the stature of the man who entertained us for decades. This is how the idea around the music video was born.”
Vishal and Shekhar soon set a task for themselves and began working on the song. It was decided that the music video would be launched on 29th August to coincide with Michael Jackson’s birthday. While Vishal also wrote the lyrics for the song, some of the best singers in the industry – Shankar Mahadevan, Shaan, KK and Shreya Ghoshal – were roped in come behind the mike.
“For the moment, the idea is to launch the music video across all music channels just for one day. It is available on Red Chillies Entertainment website though”, informs Vishal who is currently holidaying in London.
Directed by Samar Khan, a close associate of Shah Rukh and director of films like Shaurya and Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye,’Make it Large- A tribute to Michael Jackson’ is also special since it features Prabhudeva who is yet again seen at his dancing best.
To extend the tribute, Vishal and Shekhar would also be allowing free download of the song at their website beginning 29th August.
“The video wasn’t created for making money. It’s a tribute and I am sure there are millions out there who would want to grab a copy of the song for themselves. We are more than glad to share our sentiments with the rest of the world”, concludes
