" Deepika, on my request, happily agreed to be a part of the song because even she is a huge fan of Rajini sir. The song is fun, happy and completely Rajinikanth Style, said Shah Rukh."
New Delhi, July 20 - Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan confirmed his collaboration with rapper Honey Singh for the song Thalaivar Tribute -, and clarified that it was not part of his forthcoming film Chennai Express.

The song is a tribute to legendary actor Rajinikanth.

Honey Singh and T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar had approached Shah Rukh five days back with a song dedicated to veteran actor Rajnikanth, who is given the title Thalaivar - by his fans.

Confirming this, Shah Rukh told IANS: Who isn't a fan of 'The Rajinikanth'? I had met Honey Singh and Bhushan Kumar five days back and he made me hear the song, which is titled 'Thalaivar Tribute -'.

I found it very apt for Rajini sir and wanted to be a part of it as a fan of one of the greatest actors we have.

King Khan also agreed to be a part of the dedication because its theme is very close to Chennai Express.

Composed, written and sung by Honey Singh, the song was choreographed by veteran choreographer Chinni Prakash.

Actress Deepika Padukone, SRK's co-star in Chennai Express is also a part of the special song.

Deepika, on my request, happily agreed to be a part of the song because even she is a huge fan of Rajini sir. The song is fun, happy and completely Rajinikanth Style, said Shah Rukh.
