Cricketer Suresh Raina is all set to make his Bollywood debut with actor-writer Zeishan Quadri’s first directorial venture Meeruthiya Gangsters. Raina will go to Mumbai to record the song Tu Mili Sab Mila. Suresh Raina said “Yes I will be in Mumbai to record the song. I love old Hindi songs and immediately came on board for this melodious track of Meeruthiya Gangsters and we will be improvising on the music as I am doing this for the first time,” Raina, who has been a good friend of the Revolver Rani actor, said in a statement.
It was a different experience,” he laughs, in a telephonic chat. “My wife hails from Meerut and it was she who encouraged me to sing. At home, I’m anyway singing all the time; in my house, when I travel. So, I saw this as an extension of my hobby.”
Zeishan, who co-wrote the script of Gangs of Wasseypur besides starring in Aurag Kashyap movie, encouraged Raina to lend his voice for the film. Zeishan always wanted to provide a public domain to the cricketer’s voice.
“I was looking forward to an opportunity where I could involve him and am very excited that he will be singing for my film. I’m happy that he has agreed to do this and I am grateful to him as he has removed time for it from his busy schedule.”
