Aamir Khan has released the first song from his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha, in which he will be seen opposite Kareena Kapoor. The soulful song titled “Kahani” is written by Amitabh Bhattacharya and is sung by Mohan Kannan. Pritam is the music composer for the film.

Sharing the video on Instagram, Aamir Khan wrote, “Loved all your guesses for #KyaHaiKahani 🙂 Time to reveal the Kahani! Thrilled to share #Kahani , a very special song from #LaalSinghChaddha (Link In Bio) We hope Pritam, Amitabh and Mohan’s magic will leave you with an everlasting smile!

Directed by Advait Chandan, Indian Adaptation by Atul Kulkarni, Original Screenplay by Eric Roth. Produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and Viacom18 Studios.”

Interestingly, there is no video accompanying the song, and this has been done intentionally to highlight the music and the lyrics.

Talking about the same, Aamir Khan said, “I truly believe that the songs in Laal Singh Chaddha are the soul of the film and this album has some of my career’s best songs. It was a very intentional decision to put Pritam, Amitabh, the singers, and technicians in the spotlight because not only do they deserve to be center stage but also the music deserves its due credit. I can’t wait to see how audiences react to the music that the team has poured their heart and soul into.” 

Pritam called Aamir “a hero both onscreen and off it” and said that the actor understands that music needs to be under the spotlight at times.

Lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya said, “I have tried my best to encapsulate the soul of the film through the lyrics of this song. It was a beautiful experience and I am so happy that the release of this song is going to be a novel experience for all of us!”
