Karan Johar has unveiled a new song for his upcoming film, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The song in question is the title track for the much-awaited film, and it is sure to leave a solid impression on listeners. The accompanying video is no less of a satisfying watch, as it not only demonstrates the film’s plot in part but also gives us a slice of what to expect from the chemistry between the main cast.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Karan Johar’s first directorial venture after a hiatus of four years stars Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Anushka Sharma in the leading roles, along with Fawad Khan. Shah Rukh Khan is also expected to appear in a cameo role in the film. The title track that was revealed today has been performed by one of the most coveted vocalists at the moment, Arijit Singh, with lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The music for the song has been composed by Pritam.
The song’s powerful lyrics in combination with Singh’s passionate vocals make for a soulful and intriguing effect. The accompanying video opens with Ranbir Kapoor performing the song in the film, but it quickly moves on to a montage of the emotional turmoil that the characters in the film undergo. The chemistry between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor is passionate and steamy, while the one between Kapoor and Anushka Sharma is emotional and explosive. Fawad Khan’s presence in the video hints at a promising cameo from the Pakistani heartthrob.
The video to the track with Ranbir Kapoor had been shot before the song was recorded by Singh, and the singer has mentioned that he had to study the actor’s expressions carefully before rendering the appropriate emotions into his performance. The song marks the first time Arijit Singh has collaborated with a film directed by Karan Johar. A week ago, a teaser trailer of the film was released backed by a shorter version of the same song. The full song and the video that was released today have driven social media platforms into a frenzy, with several fans commenting on how well the soulful song and the powerful performances of the actors complement each other.
