Mumbai/IBNS: T-Series and Reliance Entertainment along with Match Cut Productions launched late singer KK's possibly last recorded song Dhoop Paani Bahne De from their film, 'Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga'. 

The song has written by Shantanu Moitra, with lyrics by legendary Gulzar.

"Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, was one of the most talented playback singers of our time. During his brilliant 26 years of work, he was also universally liked and had an aura of positive energy all around him. Having a song sung by him amid the other songs in the film is an honour," the team said in a statement.

Being the last song recorded together, Gulzar said, “Srijit has done me a favour in Sherdil. Not only did I get to write for such a beautiful film, I got to meet KK after ages. KK had first sung a song of mine in Maachis, "chhor aye hum woh galiya...".

"When he came to sing the song for Sherdil, it filled my heart with joy but It's a shame that this had to go down as one of his last songs. It's like he came to say goodbye. The song in Sherdil is on environment. The way it's been used in the film, it's a call to save your jungles, rivers, animals and birds. After lending his voice to such an important message, he should have stayed a little longer. Pity it wasn't in our hands. I will pray for and remember him. Wherever Sherdil goes, his memory will accompany us," he said.

Shantanu Moitra added, “KK sang this song like it was his own. He told me this song has given Gulzar sahib back to him after two decades. He was also excited that he would sing this song in live concerts because it talks about conservation and the youth needs to listen to this.”

Director, Srijit Mukherji said, “We have grown up on Gulzarsaab's poetry. We have grown up befriending KK's voice in every matter of the heart. So it is a double dream come true for me.”

Inspired by true events, Srijit Mukherji has brought forth a story about the adverse effects of urbanization, man-animal conflict and poverty leading to a bizarre practice in a village that resides on the edge of a forest.

The film stars Pankaj Tripathi, Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta.

The family entertainer is all set to hit the screens on June 24.
