Batti Gul Meter Chalu unveiled its first song called Dekhte Dekhte on Tuesday. Featuring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, the song has a romantic vibe and is all about lovers' squabble. With over 20 milliion views in just 24 hours, the song has been trending on Youtube on number 4. That is a HUGE leap considering the views overnight for a Bollywood song.
The song is a modern take on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's composition and has been sung beautifully by Atif Aslam.
In it, we see an unhappy Shahid trying to make up to his girlfriend, played by Shraddha, who is in no mood for it. The song is filled with moments from their happier times together; their first date, tender moments, bike rides and first dance. The song clearly shows that the couple is on a hold despite bumping into each other every day. From the look of it, it seems they even travel together but there is an eerie silence between them.
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, Batti Gul Meter Chalu revolves around the problem of electricity theft in a small town of Uttarakhand. Shahid and Shraddha first take a light-hearted dig at the issue of frequent power cuts, but things turn serious when their friend, played by Divyendu Sharma, commits suicide after being harassed to pay a hefty amount as his electricity bill.
The movie will hit the big screens on September 21.
