Big B, B'wood divas in Adnan Sami's music videos?

Mumbai, Jan 26 (IANS) Singer-composer Adnan Sami plans to invite Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and beauties like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone to feature in the music videos of songs from his new album "Press Play".

The album, which was released ahead of schedule to beat piracy, is doing well.

Each of the songs is now expected to get a music video. Each of the tracks in the album will feature one Bollywood diva dancing with Adnan in the music videos.

The names on the list include Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor and Asin. Talks are on with several actresses for what promises to be Adnan's personal multi-starrer, said a source.

"Years ago when Adnan did the album 'Tera Chehra', he got Rani Mukerji, Ameesha Patel and many other screen queens of that phase to do music videos. Now when Adnan's new album, which is his most personal and autobiographical album to date, has received such a warm reception, Adnan and his music company Universal have decided to carry the eleven tracks of 'Press Play' forward with top notch music videos, directed by the biggest names in the business," said a source very close to the project.

While the Bollywood divas are being pressed into action for romantic tracks like "Kudi tight", "Main tere paas hoon" and "Karun na yaad", Adnan plans to persuade his wife Roya to make an appearance in the video of the song dedicated to her.

For another song, "Baba", dedicated to Adnan's deceased father, he intends to invite the Big B.

Years ago, Amitabh featured in Adnan's song "Lift kara de". While the earlier song was fun all the way, this time it would be a far more meditative and sombre coming together of the two artistes.

Questioned about his lofty plans for the music videos to support his new album, Adnan said: "I do have plans, major plans. The response to the album has taken all of us by surprise. We never expected it would conquer the premature internet exposure so gloriously. Now I plan to take the songs forward and would be roping in my friends from the film fraternity."
