New Delhi, Aug 13 (IANS) A unique version of patriotic song "Hum Hindustani", merely with sounds of whistles, has been created to capture the spirit of Independence Day.

The special version, a channel identity, performed by members of the Indian Whistlers' Association (IWA), is an initiative by Bollywood music channel 9XM.

With a fresh dubstep twist, "Hum Hindustani" is created in association with SaReGaMa.

"'Hum Hindustani' is one of the most popular patriotic songs and we wanted to capture the quintessential sense of independence in today's prevailing sentiment. Hence, we created this version with the Indian Whistlers' Association and Ricky Kej," Amar Tidke, senior vice president and head of content, 9X Media, said in a statement.

For IWA members, shooting the 'Hum Hindustani' channel identity was a great experience.

"We ended up doing fun things that we would have never done in our real lives. During the shoot, we sat on the railway tracks which none of us have done in the past... so it was a memorable experience in all," said IWA founder Rigveda Deshpandey.
