A new song from upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu called Dekhte Dekhte was unveiled on Tuesday. Featuring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, the song has a romantic flavour and is all about lovers’ tiff. Now, the song has become the most viewed Hindi song on YouTube. With over 20 milliion views in just 24 hours, the romantic song has been trending on Youtube on number 4.
The song is a modern take on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s composition. After the first quirky track ‘Gold Tamba’, this is a slow number sung by Atif Aslam.
In it, we see an unhappy Shahid trying to patch up matters with his girlfriend, played by Shraddha, who is in no mood for it. The song is interspersed with moments from their happier times together; their first date, tender moments, bike rides and first dance. The song clearly shows that they are not on talking terms despite bumping into each other every day. From the look of it, it seems they even travel together (for work perhaps) but there is a stony 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.
