Priyanka Chopra’s latest release Mary Kom, a film based on the life of the Indian pugilist by the same name has opened well at the box office. While on one hand, the film’s sure shot success at the box office is not a surprise, we hear that the track ‘Saalam India’ has been selected as the theme song for the next Asian Games.
The song released online just two weeks ago and the film, Mary Kom, opened just few days back. I knew that ‘Salaam India’ was destined for big things. And there can be no bigger honour than this,” says the elated Shivamm.
“I had sung the scratch and Vishalji wondered why I didn’t go ahead with it. I pointed out that if they sang it, it’ll make the song bigger and more special to me”, says Shivamm adding, “They obliged, and being a composer himself, Salimji even gave his inputs on a particular harmony. Now, see how big the song has become.”
