Rakhi Sawant continues to be in news, if not for the controversies then the work she is actually doing in front of the camera.
Now she would be seen on the small screen for at least a few more weeks to come in her brand new music video for the album 'Night Birds - Tu Dassda' where she plays the part of a nurse. As expected, the camera is stuck on her for the entire duration of the song with not a single frame missing her! What is noticeable though is that unlike her dare-bare videos in the past, this one has her decently covered [strictly as per the standards set by her] with no hint of vulgarity.
Having said that, one also has to admit that the music video isn't half as exciting as the ones in which Rakhi has featured in the past, though this has nothing to do really with the lack of skin show. With not much 'dum' in the 5 minutes song that plays, this music video may turn out to be one of those rare non-successes for Rakhi, both on and off the screen!
With the arrival of YBR Records, a T-Series company, music promotion has turned over a new leaf ever since the company debuted with USTAD & THE DIVAS.
While the album turned out to be a superhit, the company has intensified the promotion of the numerous labels it owns, starting with 'Bhajans'. While 'bhajan' promotion has traditionally been associated with videos shot in temples and other pilgrimage spots, the new age promotion campaign means that this is being done differently too.
So what we see is a series of ad films being shot that propagate the cause of 'Hanuman Chalisa', 'Gayatri Mantra' etc. by means of bringing out incidents which constitute slice of life.
These well received ads have given a new dimension to the 'bhajan' albums and should definitely result in an altogether new market being created for the music belonging to this genre.
About YBR-Records: It is a boutique label, which exclusively deals with Hindi non-film repertoire, international music and home video, children’s repertoire and production of full-length Hindi feature films.
