Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra Song “Kesariya” To Be Released Tomorrow
New Delhi: The highly anticipated song “Kesariya” from the upcoming film “Brahmastra” by Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will finally be released on July 17, Sunday.
Sharing the song’s release date, director Ayan Mukerji wrote a heartfelt note on Saturday and explained the process behind the creation of the “Brahmastra” soundtracks.
“Our musical journey really takes off tomorrow… with the launch of Kesariya! Pritam/Dada – was one of the first collaborators to embark on Brahmāstra’s journey, and we spent years – of sleepless nights, making songs, rejecting songs, insisting on deadlines, cups of tea , thinking about discussing working to create – on Brahmāstra! he wrote.
“I think that relationship is the highest level of creative collaboration I have on this film, and his work more than anyone else, gives soul to that vision,” he added.
Ayan went on to say, “To be honest, I always imagined that we would release a song that was pretty much about SHIVA, like Brahmāstra’s first song… But there was SO much heat for the Kesariya Teaser, that we decided we had to turn it off first (or everyone would kill us)!”
“And now I cannot imagine it being otherwise…because Kesariya is about Shiva and ISHA…and their Love, which is the Core of Brahmāstra…! I hope you enjoy the song when it comes out tomorrow, appreciate its beauty and simplicity, and add joy to your lives!!” He shared.
The director also mentioned that each version of the song in southern languages has a “separate identity”.
“Brahmastra” is finally set to hit the big screens on September 9. Apart from Ranbir and Alia, it also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna in key roles. Shah Rukh Khan was reportedly seen trying out for a small but pivotal role in the film.
