Gulzar and A R Rahman team up for an anthem – ‘Jai Hind, Jai India’
Reportedly, veteran lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar and Music wizard A.R. Rahman have teamed up again for the ‘Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018’ for which event they have created the anthem behind the tournament. The song will have a blend of poetry and pulsating rhythm.
The song’s theme is India, Odisha and purpose as being loftier than victory or defeat. Even as the song is set to release at the Kalinga Stadium Inauguration scheduled for early October perhaps the high point will be Rahman performing it live at the Opening Ceremony on November 27, his first ever performance in the state, adds a source.
According to reports, the song is titled ‘Jai Hind, Jai India’, which has been penned by Gulzar. In a statement even as confirming the collaboration, ,Rahman affirms that nothing says India more than our beloved sport hockey. And nothing is more exciting than the world’s biggest hockey tournament happening right here on our turf. It’s heart-warming to see the entire nation pledge their heartbeats for hockey. As an extension of pledging our heartbeats, Gulzar sahab and the music wizard have created the World Cup song, a song that will excite and inspire and also get one on their feet.
The ‘Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018’ will take place from the 28th of November to the 15th of December. A total of 16 countries are participating in the 14th edition of the tournament.
