Mumbai: After releasing Laila Main Laila and Zaalima, the makers of Raees are out with another song from the soundtrack. And there couldn’t have been a better Makar Sankranti gift from Shah Rukh Khan and the team of Raees than Udi Udi song. Set against the backdrop of Uttarayan, the song gives an authentic Gujju feel.
The song is a romantic number set to garba beats. Composed by Ram Sampath, it has been sung by Sukhwinder Singh, Bhoomi Trivedi and Karsan Sagathia. The Javed Akhtar lyrics are both romantic and peppy, just the launchpad our king of romance needs as he matches steps and heartbeats with Mahira.
The song is a veritable journey of SRK and Mahira’s meeting in Raees, how they fall in love, how Shah Rukh woos Mahira (sigh) and they get married. Beautifully choreographed by Samir and Arsh Tanna, it actually brings the flavour of Gujarat and what the state stands for on the screen. It is also the perfect song to listen to as you fly kites on Makar Sakranti. We can already hear it blaring from the rooftops as multicoloured kites take to the skies.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh will also take to the terrace of his bungalow, Mannat, to fly kites on January 14. For the first time, he will be seen celebrating the festival of kites with family and fans. In fact, the preparations are underway and we are guessing this is the song he will listen to.
Earlier, Raees’ Laila Main Laila was released to a spectacular response. The film’s song Zaalima has also won over fans.
