New Delhi [India], Sept. 7 : Since its release yesterday, the video of the title track of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' has been the talk of the town, be in person or on social media.
With this, Shah Rukh Khan's claim that the title track of Karan Johar's directorial venture is one of "the nicest ballad you will hear this year" comes true.
The 50-year-old actor during a press meet at Mannat, on the occasion of Eid, said, "I have heard three songs and they are amazing.
I have heard the title track and it is one of the nicest ballets. It is fantastic." It looks like the passionate video has enchanted the B-Town biggies too. From Randeep Hooda to Sidharth Malhotra, all hailed the song on Twitter. "Super Song man (sic)," wrote Randeep Hooda. "@karanjohar Touches the heart Karan! Amazingggg #song #performances #direction @foxstarhindi @DharmaMovies @AnushkaSharma @YouTube," said Suniel Shetty.
"@karanjohar love the song, can't imagine what all you have in store for us. Kya baat hai #AeDilHaiMushkil," tweeted Nitya Mehra. "Completely possessed. Can't get over how deep the music and visuals have traveled already..what sorcery @karanjohar," tweeted Nimrat Kaur.
"Love the composition lyrics and visuals can't wait to hear the full album @karanjohar #AeDilHaiMushkil," wrote Sidharth Malhotra.
"Excellent (and) Heartbreaking. Kudos @karanjohar .:)," said Anupam Kher. "Such a beautiful tune! Congrats, @karanjohar @ipritamofficial ! Can't wait to watch the film! :)," tweeted Vishal Dadlani.
On a related note, the video has garnered more than 16 lakh views on Youtube, in a day. 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil's title track proved what KJo has been saying all along- the film is not a love triangle, it is a quadrilateral.
The video, which opens with the 'Rockstar' actor lip-syncing the track, sees the love, passion, attraction and tension between the four characters, played by Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan.
The ballad ends with a dialogue that speaks all for the song and its visual, "Mohabbat karna humare bas mein nahi hai.
Us mohabbat se door chale jaana, humare bas mein hai (Loving someone is not in our hand, but going away from it, is indeed in our hand)." Arijit Singh has lent his voice to this Pritam-composed two-and-half-minute song, which has been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
On this note, it is to mention that this is the first time that the 29-year-old singer has crooned for a Karan-directed film.
'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,' scheduled for a Diwali release on October 28, will have a clash at the Box Office with Ajay Devgn's 'Shivaay.'.
