Popular playback singer Bappi Lahiri, often known as Bollywood's 'Disco king', has crooned a special cabaret number for "Gunday". He says it will be a sureshot crowd puller.

This is Bappi's first association with movie production giant, Yash Raj Films (YRF).

"Gunday" stars Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan. When director Ali Abbas Zafar decided to make a cabaret song for "Gunday", set in 'Calcutta' of the 1980s, Bappi was an inevitable choice.

The track, composed by Sohail Sen, combines jazz with brass and drums. The female vocals are by Neha Bhasin, while the male's lines have been crooned by Bappi-da.

"I'm very excited to be a part of this, I have worked with Sohail's father Sameer many years ago and now I'm working with his talented son. This song is a guaranteed crowd puller, especially in Kolkata," Bappi said in a statement.

The veteran composer is said to have added some of his typical nuances, which were a rage in the 1980s, to add to the authenticity of the song.

Talking about the number, Sen, who has composed the "Gunday" album, said: "For months we were trying to come up with this cabaret song, but a good melody was eluding us. It is meant to be Priyanka Chopra's introduction song in the film, it had to be special."

Produced by Aditya Chopra, "Gunday" is slated to release on Valentine's Day, Feb 14, 2014.
