In the video, Rahman and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan are seen doing a simple step. They hit the hockey stick on the ground twice and then thump the heart with a clenched fist, which depicts the phrase ‘My Heart Beats For Hockey’.
Rahman has composed the anthem or official song, ‘Jai Hind, Jai India’, for Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018 and it has been penned by none other than celebrated writer-lyricist Gulzar. The music maestro has directed the music video, which also features Nayanthara, Sivamani, Neeti Mohan, Shweta Mohan, Sasha Tirupathi, Shweta Pandit, Harshdeep and prominent hockey players of India.
The 46-second teaser of the official song was released on Sunday.
