The makers are currently conceptualizing the song. It will be shot on a sweeping scale and will convey the general idea of the film. But it won’t be a part of the film’s narrative. It’s a music video which will be used for promotions. The source added that Motwane will direct it because he is great with music videos which seamlessly sync with the film’s theme.”In Katiyabaaz, an earlier collaboration, Motwane was brought in to direct just the music video and he did a great job,” said the source.
