Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman are a quirky combo. AR Rahman has given Shah Rukh Khan some memorable soundtracks in Dil Se and One 2 Ka Four. However, both the movie tanked at the box office. The only successful movie in the AR Rahman-SRk combo was Jab Tak Hai Jaan, and that was one of Rahman's weakest soundtracks. However, both celebs have high respect for each other, and now they have come together for a single to promote a YouTube original series, ARRived. AR Rahman Says He Had Suicidal Thoughts Till 25 Years of Age.
Interestingly, it is not AR Rahman who has composed the tach, but Clinton Cerejo, making this a rare event that the composer has sung a track for another music director. While Shah Rukh Khan lends his starry charm to the video, the singing duties are shared with Rahman by Shaan and Vidya Vox, along with Cerejo who also appear in the video. While the track and the video look cool, SRK plugging his new movie, Zero, in there looks forced at first! However, as per reports, the superstar is seeking a new singer, the show's winner, to croon one of Zero's tracks through the show! So there's that!
