Armaan’s doosra! 102 Not Out’s ‘Kuch Anokhe Rules’ marks the second time Armaan Malik has sung for Big B
By Bandook - May 14, 2018
Armaan Malik sang for Amitabh Bachchan right at the beginning of his career (‘Mere Buddy’ from Bhootnath, composed by Vishal & Shekhar). A couple of days ago, he came full circle singing ‘Kuch Anokhe Rules’ from 102 Not Out for another composer duo, Salim – Sulaiman.
The song, featuring lyrics by 102 Not Out director Saumya Joshi is about “living your best life and never getting too old by heart”.
Armaan calls ‘Kuch Anokhe Rules’ a “super-breezy number lightheartedly describing life during old age”. Interestingly enough, the song harks back to the big-band swing era with a jazzy beat to it.
Says Armaan, “Even though it sounds easy to the ears, it’s quite complex vocally and I had to employ both Indian & Western chops to be able to give full justice to the composition.”
Moreover, this won’t be the first time Armaan is working with Salim-Sulaiman. He admits, “We have some really amazing songs together. Kuch Anokhe Rules is another one added to our beautiful collection of collaborations!”
The film also marks another milestone for the singer. He shares, “This is my second time singing for an Amitabh Bachchan film having sung with him almost 10 years back on Mere Buddy’ from Bhootnath. I’m glad I got the opportunity to work with the living legend once again.”
