Bollywood News

Nearly 6 years after the release of the film Kapoor & Sons, director Shakun Batra is all set to present his film Gehraiyaan- a film that deals with the subject of infidelity through the life of four individuals. Through the characters played by actors Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday, and Dhairya Karwa, the film talks about the complexities of modern-day romance, touching upon themes like infidelity, commitment, and desires. However, showing the complexities of humans on screen in a limited span of time is a tricky affair and that’s where music comes into play to express the moods and thoughts of the characters, giving a deeper understanding that dialogues might not be able to convey. One such song is the title track from the film which has had the audience hooked ever since the makers dropped a part of the song along with the teaser of the film in December.

After a long wait, the makers of the film dropped the complete title track of Gehraiyaan and the song has become a complete rage on social media with netizens using the track to express themselves and uploading videos and reels with their rendition of the song.

2) Lothika  Jha penned the lyrics for ‘Frontline’ when she was coping with the grief of losing her grandmother
