After releasing the title track and Rezgaariyaan, the makers are geared up for another track which is composed by Shankar Ehsan Loy. Titled ‘Kanha Re Kanha Re’ will be an ode to all mothers.
The trailer of the movie has struck chords with the audience owing to its hard-hitting storyline. Just like in Rang De Basanti the director had incorporated a song ‘Luka Chuppi’ beautifully showcasing mother-son relations, Rakeysh has come up with one more song which showcases a mother-son relationship spectacularly on the big screen.
Talking about the same, the Director shares “I have been very lucky to have songs in my kitty and movies which are an ode to the mothers. ‘Kanha Re Kanha Re’ in Mere Pyare Prime Minister highlights the essence of the film which is about a mother-son relationship. While in Rang De Basanti we have Luka Chuppi picturized on Waheeda Rahman, this song in Mere Pyare talks about the child’s aspirations in life. In my brief to Gulzaar Bhai who has given beautiful lyrics to this song was simple ‘As if Yasoda Miyaa is singing to her Kanha / Krishna. The song cements their relationship beautifully takes it to next level. The song is high on emotions and I am sure every mother-child will be able to relate it.”

It highlights the relationship between a mother and son, and stars National Award-winning actress Anjali Patil in the role of the mother.
