“Rakh tu Hausla” is an extremely powerful and motivational song created by Pravin Talan that was recently launched by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, in support of Mumbai Police Foundation.
A very strong buzz had already been created around the song as top Bollywood stars like Shahrukh Khan, Ajay Devgan, Tiger Shroff, Rajkumar Rao and Mallika Sherawat and many others retweeted the trailer from Mumbai Police twitter handle. It is already regarded as one of the best songs that has come out in the lockdown period.
Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, Mr Parambir Singh who has led the force from the front in this crisis, makes a rare appearance in the video to boost the morale of his force and Mumbaikars.
“Rakh tu Hausla” is not just another video song but a journey into the heart and spirit of Mumbai city and it’s police force, shot during the dreaded lockdown. The cinematic interpretation of Mumbai under lockdown, the stunning visuals and the city police on duty, overwhelms you with emotions.
Pravin Talan, who has shot,written and directed the video song ,has been closely working with various police and armed forces and Disaster Management Department . Talking about the video he says, “I have spent umpteen anxious nights during this period because of all the risks, but in my heart I just knew that this story needed to be told. This song is not just about Mumbai Police but perhaps of every policeman and corona warrior including health workers across the country and the world. And thankfully, with T-Series , we have the best music platform to create that outreach.”
He said, “ The most difficult part of the song was perhaps writing down the right kind of inspirational lyrics but once that was achieved half the job was done. Going into places like Dharavi wasn’t easy, and many policemen I met during this period eventually found Covid positive. But we all find strength from each other and our own song inspired to move forward.
Mr Bhushan Kumar, CMD, T-Series said that the police force has played a very important role during this pandemic across the globe. He says, “Rakh tu Hausla is the ﬁrst song that’s dedicated to extraordinary efforts of police force, beautiful shot in high risk situations by Pravin Talan.
