The makers of Welcome To New York starring Diljit Dosanjh and Sonakshi Sinha, have released a new song titled Ishtehaar. Voiced by Rahat fateh Ali Khan and Dhvani Bhanushali, the song is an ode to the pain of love. It’s been composed by Shamir Tandon and shows the differences that have crept into Dosanjh and Sinha’s relationship in the film.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan talked about the song. He said, “Ishtehar is a beautiful soulful rendition and it was a pleasure to sing to the music of Shamir ji and collaborate with Puja Music for this song. It’s great to witness a young girl like Dhvani who has a lovely voice making her debut and sing besides me. Shammi ji has beautifully composed the song with Charanjeet ji’s lyrics giving it that magical touch.”
Dhvani Bhanushali said, “It is an honour to sing alongside Rahat Fateh Ali Sahab. It was great working under the baton of music director Shammi Tandon. It has truly been an experience that I will cherish forever. I am greatful to Puja Music for the opportunity.”
“The melodic tune, soulful lyrics, and Rahat Sahab’s vocals are undoubtedly going to make everyone fall in love with the song. Puja Music has once again got it right with this one,” said director Chakri Toleti.
Welcome To New York that also features Karan Johar, Sushant Singh Rajput and Rana Daggubati will be released on February 23, 2018.
