Mumbai, Mar 2 (IANS) It took actor Jackky Bhagnani a long time to get the rights to Korean singer Psy's superhit number "Gangnam style" for his film "Rangrezz". He says it was his gift from him to his father, producer Vashu Bhagnani.

"I thought that Indians should also have this song. So I started a conversation, which took three months. When I got the papers signed for the song ('Gangnam style'), I took them to my dad and said, 'You have done a lot for me and I have got a gift for you'. He was shocked to see that gift," the 27-year-old said here Friday at the Wassup Andheri Fest.

"We have named our Gangnam as 'Desi gangnam'," said the actor, who admits he is now "trying to establish my own identity."

Meanwhile, Jackky also wants to concentrate a bit on his personal life.

"Let me earn for myself, then I will spend on my girlfriends. Earlier, I was fat, so girls never noticed me, but now I have shed weight, so let me make girlfriends first!" Jackky said.

Directed by Priyadarshan, "Rangrezz", releasing March 22, features actress Priya Anand opposite Jackky.
