Popular Pakistani pop rock band Strings, best known for songs like Duur and Dhaani  is set to record a song for a new Bollywood film titled John Day.

Strings — which is a two-member band comprising lead vocalist Faisal Kapadia and composer-guitarist Bilal Maqsood — earlier created songs for Hindi films like Zinda and Shootout At Lokhandwala.

They even composed the Khan theme of My Name Is Khan, while their song Naa jaane kyun from the album Dhaani was included in the soundtrack of the Hindi version of Spider-Man 2 in 2004. The song for John Day will be a promotional track, said a statement. It will be filmed on actors Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda, who are back in a film after over a decade. They last shared screen space in 2001 film Monsoon Wedding. Directed by debutant Ahishor Solomon and produced by A Wednesday fame Anjum Rizvi along with K. Asif, John Day is a thriller. It also features Elena Kazan, Shernaz Patel, Sharat Saxena and Vipin Sharma. The film is slated to release in summer this year.
