MUMBAI — Jatin-Lalit had recalled how Aamir Khan had insisted on many rehearsals before recording “Aati Kya Khandala” with Alka Yagnik for the 1998 “Ghulam.”  The song was a rage, and now Khan is going to rap in a special promotional song for his new production “Dangal,” directed by Nitesh Tiwari.

Khan is excited about doing a rap number, a peppy track that will be used in the promotions. After recording it, he will shoot for the video.

After his debut in “Ghulam,” Khan recited ‘shaayari’ in films like “Sarfarosh” and “Fanna,” sang a few portions in “Rang De Basanti” and “Mangal Pandey—The Rising,” and had also sung in “Taare Zameen Par.”

And after a gap of nine years, the actor is returning to singing. Pritam has composed the song, while Amitabh Bhattacharya has written the lyrics. When the director broached the idea, Khan gave it a thumbs-up.

The actor, who has wrapped up the shooting, has already begun practicing for the song. Pritam and Bhattacharya are part of his practice sessions.
