"The Premier Futsal anthem is sporty, lively, mix of rap chorus and beats."
Virat Kohli and A.R. Rahman shake a leg to the Premier Futsal anthem, titled ‘Naam Hai Futsal’.
This is the first time that the ‘Mozart of Madras’ is lending his music prodigy to a franchise-based sports league in the country.
He tells Indiatoday: “The Premier Futsal anthem is very different, it is sporty, lively, mix of rap chorus and beats.
“Commonwealth was rock, Pelé was electronic – stadium anthem kind of a thing.
“This is like a much younger sound, something that people look for in today’s times.”
Indeed, the happy techno song is one extraordinary creation, with the Indian cricket sensation Virat Kohli grooving and rapping which is definitely refreshing to see.
And we are pleasantly surprised by how this fiercely talented cricketer showcases his new found talents!
