The first song of upcoming spy thriller Tiger Zinda Hai titled Swag Se Swagat was an instant hit and taking things a step ahead, the makers of the film also created an Arabic version of the track, which was released today. Sung by Rabih Baroud and Brigitte Yaghi, the Arabic version has the same tune and high energy. Lyricist Mohammad Jad Malak has translated the original words to Arabic in collaboration with master gate music services by Ziad Karimeh in Lebanon. Speaking about this Arabic version, director Ali Abbas Zafar said, “As the song is a chartbuster here in India, and the film is shot in the Middle East and focuses on a major issue that affects the region, we were very keen to engage with audiences there. Dubbing the song in a local language is a way to connect with audiences in the Middle East, as Hindi films have huge appeal there and Salman Khan is the biggest superstar in the region.”
Tiger Zinda Hai, which stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles, is slated to release on December 22.
