Mumbai: Aamir Khan had spiked our interest with the first poster and won million hearts with his character in the trailer. The new track featuring Aamir with Sanjay Dutt, 'Tharki Chokro' amazed us with its Rajasthani composition folk singer Swaroop Khan.

It was the last song Sanjay shot for before his imprisonment. The makers recently released the song's making and the trio- Aamir, Sanjay and Rajkumar Hirani seemed to be enjoying every bit of the shooting. The video also shows us a glimpse of Ganesh Acharya choreographing it.

 

A person close to the film has mentioned, “Swaroop Khan was a very popular contestant on a music reality show. Rajkumar wanted a very Rajasthani feel for the song and this is Swaroop’s big break in Bollywood. He felt Swaroop would do complete justice with his Rajasthani folk music. He feels that the Rajasthani language hasn’t been properly explored in Bollywood and it would be a good change for the audience as well. The song features Sanjay who is shown as part of a local Rajasthani band. He is shown addressing Aamir Khan as ‘tharki chokro’ in the song. The makers of PK are planning to promote the song in a big way. As Rajkumar Hirani is close to Sanjay, he has planned it as a tribute. Sanjay hasn’t seen the song yet. Aamir and Rajkumar are known for their innovative promotional strategies and this one too will see some enormous promotions in the coming days.”
