The teaser of Karan Johar’s directorial ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ has struck the right chord with the audience. With the fabulous performances of the leads and the beautiful storyline, it’s the title track crooned by Arijit Singh which raises the curiosity. Although the song is receiving thumbs up from many B-Town celebs, composer Pritam had uncertainties about it. The reason for this was the reaction of the audience towards it.
Talking about it to an agency, Pritam said, “I was a little tensed before the song released. I had been complimented about the song so many times by Karan (Johar). Aditya Chopra had told me that he had liked the song very much… Even Shah Rukh loved the song very much.”
“In Panchgani, I was playing the song on guitar and Aamir also loved it. Everyone had liked the song even as it (was) being created. So, I was tensed. When suddenly there is so much hype about it, you don’t know if the song will live up to the expectations once it goes to the audience. Whether they will accept it or not. I am happy that they have liked it,” added the composer.
This was the first time for composer Pritam to collaborate with Karan Johar on his directorial project, so while discussing the title song, Karan was specific in his brief about what he wanted it to be like.
Talking about it, Pritam said, “Karan’s brief was that ‘Ae Dil hai Mushkil’ title has to fit in well. He had the title in mind from beginning, so the title had to come in the right place. Secondly, it comes at a time in the film which is very defined. There was loss, so there had to be pain, there has to be angst in the song, that was a must.”
Well, looking at so many praises pouring in for this title track, we must say bravo to everyone associated with it.
‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan in pivotal parts.
It is slated to release on October 28, 2016.
