Ranbir Kapoor shot for a special last-minute song in the movie 'Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year' soon after losing his maternal grandmother.

The young actor was very close to his grandma<a href=Ranbir Kapoor" align="right" hspace="5" vspace="5" /> Rajee Singh (his actress mother Neetu Singh's mother) who lived in his house and in fact, in a room right opposite his and was constantly in and out of her favourite grandson's space.

But the day after her death, he was dancing to choreographer Ahmed Khan's tune.

'We had to take cancel one day's shoot because Ranbir's 'naani' (grandma) passed away. But we managed in two days,' said Khan.

The song has apparently been added to director Shimit Amin's 'Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year' much to the choreographer's surprise.

'Even I was surprised when Aditya Chopra approached me for a song in 'Rocket Singh...'. Then I heard the track by Salim-Suleiman and I was blown. It's a sure-shot hit,' said Khan who is riding high on the waves of the 'Dhan te nan' track from 'Kaminey'.

The song was apparently Chopra's and not Amin's idea.

'I've a five-film deal with Yash Raj, so I am at their beck and call. And if it's a song for Ranbir, then it's even more fun,' said Khan who has forged another durable star-choreographer bond with Ranbir after Shahid Kapoor.

'Rocket Singh...' is my third film with Ranbir after 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' and 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani'. We've an almost instinctive understanding of what Ranbir's body language is and how it can be used,' he said.

This would the second item number with a Sikh hero after 'Singh Is Kinng', but Khan says it is different. 'This is a young cute Sardarji having a blast on the dance floor. It's unlike anything anyone has ever seen.'

    professionalism? oh right, because that's so much more important than family and comes before it. shooting a dancing scene? reeeeeeeeal nice.

    I agree that ranbir could've waited a while, but then that wouldn't be called professionalism anymore. Whatever he thinks is the best at the moment.
