The song is set on the backdrop of Gujarat’s famous Kite Festival ‘Uttaran’.
Garba is a Gujarati folk dance form and none of the major celebrations in Gujarat is complete without it.
“Uttran is one of the biggest festivals in Gujarat and garba is our state dance. No film rooted in Gujarat is complete without either of them. A majority of writers in the film were Gujaratis and we decided to include a special song, which will take the story forward,” says director Rahul Dholakia, who belongs to Gujarat as well. SRK along with co-star Mahira will be dancing to the beats of Garba.
The song has been penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Ram Sampath. Singers Sukhwinder Singh, Bhoomi Trivedi and Karsan Sagathia have lent their voices.
Can’t wait already!
