After his hip hop track in Bluffmaster , Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan got together with American rapper Wyclef Jean for another number 'Hollywood meets Bollywood' to pay tribute to Hindi cinema and his legendary father Amitabh Bachchan .

Abhishek sang lyrics like "Main yahan ka desi don" and "Khai ke banarsi paan", drawing a direct reference to the Big B in the hit Don (1978) .




Not only did Jean specially asked for Abhishek to do the track, he also flew down from his home in New York to Miami to record with Abhishek and composer Aadesh Shrivastava for a new album that will release in India in May.

Recounting the collaboration, Shrivastava said: "It was unbelievable. Jean and I were discussing a track where we needed hip hop rap in Hindi by an Indian star, when Jean suggested, 'How about Abheee-shake?' Naturally I jumped at the suggestion.

"I've recorded many songs with Amitji. And I've been waiting for the right opportunity to record with Abhishek, who I know has a terrific singing voice."

Plans were immediately concretised. Since Abhishek was working within a very tight schedule for Karan Johar 's Dostana in Miami, there was no choice but for Shrivastava and Jean to fly down to Miami.

"They became musical soul mates within minutes. Since I was the one who knew both of them, I thought I'd have to play intermediary. There was instant chemistry between Jean and Abhishek," said Shrivastava.

Abhishek's lyrics for this sure-fire chartbuster are: "Wyclef, Aadesh comeon rock this party shake shake. Main yahan ka desi don sang mere ga re. India hamari shaan. Khai ke banarsi paan sang mere tu ga re."

The song was recorded at the Setai recording studio located in one of the posh hotels of Miami.

"Abhishek, Jean and I had a ball recording the song till 2.30 in the morning. And then would you believe it, Abhishek headed straight for the shooting of 'Dostana', which started at 4 a.m.," exclaimed the composer.
