Fawad Khan will return to his musical roots in his Bollywood next, Kapoor & Sons.

While he plays a writer in the film, in which he co-stars with Siddharth Malhotra (who plays his brother) and Alia Bhatt (who is said to play their mutual love interest), the main trio has also been roped in to sing an original song in their own voices.

According to the source, "They are looking for a fun track with a young, energetic vibe like the film," reports Mumbai Mirror.

Director Shakun Batra confirmed the news as well: "Yes, currently we are in the process of locking a track. [The producer] Karan [Johar] has some exciting ideas for the promotional unit and I am looking forward to getting to shoot with all of them again."

While Fawad was first famous in Pakistan as the frontman of rockband eP, Alia has two songs to her credit for her films Highway and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. For Siddharth, however, this will be his first time singing.

The song will be recorded and picturised next month.
