BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Singham actor Ajay Devgn is leaving no stone unturned in driving home the urgent and necessary message of asking people to stay at home during the lockdown. Now he has come up with a song Thahar Ja, which literally translates to ‘wait for a while’.
“It was shot simply with whatever resources were available at home. Later, I sent it to the editor and told him what kind of shots I wanted in the video. Everyone, who was part of this, worked on it from their own homes,” said Ajay in a statement, reports PTI.
The song for the video was shot by his nine-year-old son Yug, while Mehul Vyas handled the composition and singing. “Given that I didn’t have a team to shoot it, I asked my son, Yug, if he wanted to be a part of it as my assistant director. When we shot it, all through the day he was working with me and running around the house. He was excited to see his name in the credits,” he said.
Ajay stressed on the fact that the song was more about having a positive outlook during such a difficult time. He said, “The song is more about mental health and happiness. Through the song, we are trying to explain to the common man that you have been working all your life for your family, so now, for the sake of their safety, you have to stay at home. The common man needs to work and feed his family, but right now, everyone needs to calm down, stay safe and sane at home. That is really important.”
