The makers of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani have finally unveiled the first song, Titled Tum Kya Mile. The song has been sung by Arijit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal, while the music has been composed by Pritam. The lyrics have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Meanwhile, a few hours ago, Karan Johar penned a lengthy note in which he shared his idea behind the song Tum Kya Mile. He wrote, “In a few hours #tumkyamile will be yours….I remember at the very onset my instinct was that I wanted to film a love song that would unabashadely pay homage to my guru Yash Chopra…. The thinking evolved mind would say “you can’t match it or even dare to emulate it “ but the fan boy and the ardent lover of snow , chiffons,the stunning locations of Kashmir and sheer romance got the better of me…”
Karan Johar added that Tum Kya Mile is the first shoot that Alia Bhatt did after the birth of her daughter Raha, and he feels apologetic for freezing her in Manish Malhotra chiffon sarees. “In sympathy I fell drastically ill through the shoot ( a karmic punishment perhaps ) Ranveer was nervous as this was his first lip sync mountain love song but he was a real trooper….So we are back to the valleys for a ishq wala lip sync chiffon saree song…I hope you feel the love as much as we felt the cold…This one’s for you Yash uncle …Your fan forever,” wrote Karan.
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani marks Karan Johar’s return to the director’s chair after over six years. It also stars Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi.
The film will hit the theatres on July 28.
