Farhan Akhtar & Vishal Dadlani to produce music video for ‘X-Men’ TV premiere

MUMBAI: Star Movies is all set to premiere X-Men: Days of the Future Past on 19 April. However, this is the first time that the channel will be carrying out an innovation around the premiere. Star Movies has joined hands with Farhan Akhtar, Vishal Dadlani and SKRAT to produce a music video around the movie in a bid to essay the core of the film and pay tribute to the power of friendship.


In X-Men: Days of the Future Past, the X-Men come together as one to ward off an indefeatable enemy. This movie showcases the power of camaraderie, brotherhood and above all the fact that the only way to save the future is to stand together. For together, they become an unstoppable force.


Filmmaker, actor and Farout Media co-founder Farhan Akhtar said, “The song Mutant Macha is a collaborative effort between Skrat, Vishal and myself. It's a song that portrays the ultimate hero - someone who stands for good in the most adverse of times. Our collaboration is keeping in spirit with the kinship that the world needs to create a united force for positivity.”


Farout Media CEO and co-founder Anurag Rao added, “The vision for Farout Media is based on its core principle of ‘Music Innovations’, with a clear focus on artist interests and repertoire monetization. Star Movies - X-Men 2 Premiere partnership is a fantastic way to introduce new music through synchronization and retention of music rights by content creators.” 


A Star Movies spokesperson said, “This association is in sync with our purpose of giving young talent of India a platform making this association a perfect example of camaraderie and friendship just like the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past.”


X-Men: Days of the Future Past will premiere on 19 April at 1 pm and 9 pm.
