whoa combo! rahman + gulzar + bappi

Bappi's in Travolta mode. His recent revival has comprised the usual song and dance (Mr Prime Minister, Topless, Jaya Prada's venture into hip-hop), the occasional background score (Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara) and, in a rather interesting turn, singing bambaii nagariyaa for Vishal-Shekhar in Taxi No 9211. And now in a rather interesting coup, Bappi has sung a song penned by Gulzar and set to music by A R Rahman for Mani Ratnam's next film Guru (a film that's poised to be more valued for all the casting trivia unless Mani Saar manages a creative coup). The song's supposed to embellish the opening credits. I wonder if it's only a coincidence that Bappi was the music director responsible for delectable howlers like Bad Girl for the Mithun-Sridevi powerhouse flick Guru several years ago. This gives B-mongers (where B, in this case, can also mean Bappi) a reason to await the soundtrack.
