MUMBAI: After creating waves with its grand trailer, the Happy New Year team launched its theme song Indiawaale on 2 September. Featuring the entire cast of the movie, the song is typical Farah Khan affair - grand and opulent.
Penned by lyricist Irshad Kamil, Indiawaale has been composed by musical duo Vishal-Shekhar. The track is sung by Vishal Dadlani, KK, Shankar Mahadevan and Neeti Mohan.
Excited about Indiawaale’s release, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted, “The first song will see the light of the world today from HNY, “Indiawaale.” Hope it entertains you all. Life is the dancer & you are the dance.”
Talking to the media about the song release, director Farah Khan said, "Indiawaale is the first-of-its-kind song. A dance anthem for sure! It gives you goose bumps and also forces you to get up and dance. It was truly the most difficult song to crack as not only I but Vishal-Shekhar and Irshad Bhai (Kamil) had to think of today’s patriotism and make a song around that. Today what we feel for our country is so different from the sentiments of the '70s and '80s. It’s really a song that encapsulates all that makes us uniquely Indiawaale."
“I am so excited for everyone to hear the full song because we feel that ‘Indiawaale’ is a dance anthem that can be heard and danced to in a disco, stadium or a stage. It is a song for everyone!” said Shekhar Ravjiani prior to the release of the song at an event.
