Mumbai: Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan launched the music of his upcoming movie – ‘Chennai Express’ and the event was indeed a memorable one. Going with the theme of the film, mediapersons were given 'mund' and 'lungi', the traditional attire of South Indians.

"It was quite an experience wearing a 'lungi' and it was helpful because we were shooting in a hot place," Shahrukh told reporters. Musician-duo Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravijiani composed the music.

Deepika Padukone, who worked with Shahrukh in her debut film ‘Om Shanti Om,’ says he is still very protective about her. She said, "He is still the same. He is still very protective and caring about me."

The music launch also had performances by dancers and Shahrukh, who recently had a shoulder operation, grooved with them. Directed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Chennai Express’ is expected to hit the screens on August 8.
