Shah Rukh Khan who is busy promoting his upcoming film Jab Harry Met Sejal, released a new song titled ‘Butterfly’. The song was launched in Punjab on Thursday. The actor later tweeted, what you seek you find in your own desh ki dharti & mitti.
Shah Rukh Khan took to twitter sharing, “Jab Harry & Sejal Punjab waapis aa Gaye. Wot u seek u find in ur own desh ki dharti & mitti”.
‘Butterfly’ is set against the backdrop of Punjab featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in a traditional Punjabi avatar dancing their heart out in a field.
The peppy song has both Shah Rukh and Anushka exuding electrifying energy as they dance to the Punjabi beats of Pritam. Shah Rukh Khan brings back the same energy from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuck Kuch hota hai showcasing he isn’t a senior actor yet.
The song showcases both the actors, in contrast, looks in comparison to their avatars in the mini trails and the songs ‘Radha’ and ‘Beech Beech Mein’ from the film.
‘Butterfly’ further expresses the freedom of both Harry and Sejal who are seen soaking in the Punjabi vibe as they are seen riding on a tractor, dancing atop a shed and celebrate life. The song is composed by Pritam and is sung by Aman Trikha, Nooran Sisters, Dev Negi and Sunidhi Chauhan.
Both Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali are closely etched with Punjab as far as their body of work is concerned.
The actor has played a Punjabi guy in the films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Veer Zara to name a few, while filmmaker Imtiaz Ali’s Jab we met and Love Aaj Kal connected the audience to Punjab.
After launching ‘Radha’ amidst 7000 Sejals in Ahmedabad and club hopping to launch ‘Beech Beech Mein’, the makers of ‘Jab Harry met Sejal’ have now launched their third song ‘Butterfly’ in sync with its Punjabi vibe.
In ‘Jab Harry met Sejal’ Shah Rukh Khan essays the role of a rooted Punjabi guy who travels to Canada for work.
The earlier released songs ‘Radha’, ‘Beech Beech Mein’ and ‘Safar’ have been topping the playlist ever since its release.
Presented by Red Chillies Entertainment, ‘Jab Harry met Sejal’ is directed by Imtiaz Ali. The film is all set to release on August 4th, 2017.
