New Delhi: OK Jaanu, the first Hindi film of 2017, releases this Friday and its stars, Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, will promote their movie on this weekend's episode of new talent show Dil Hai Hindustani. The main attraction of the episode will be a performance of The Humma Song by Aditya (also on guitar), Shraddha and rapper Badshah, who helped remix the song for the film and also serves as a judge on Dil Hai Hindustani, which began airing last week. The Humma Song is a reworking of A R Rahman's Nineties Hamma Hamma, originally sung by Remo Fernandes for Mani Ratnam's film Bombay. A teaser of the performance on Dil Hai Hindustani - greeted by appreciative applause by Badshah's co-judges Karan Johar, Shalmali Kholgade and Shekhar Ravjiani - was tweeted by Star Plus, which airs the show.
