The Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees is getting ready to release some more music magic with the song Udi Udi Jaye. The Gujarati flavoured track picturised on Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira features the stars playing “Garba” in traditional attire – with Shah Rukh Khan sporting a red bandhani dupatta complimenting Mahira in a red ghaghra-choli.
We have a special sneek peek to hold you over until the song releases tomorrow!

Coinciding with the Gujarati festival Makar Sankranti, ‘Udi Udi Jaye’ will be soaked in Gujarati flavours. Since the custom of kite-flying is associated with Makar Sankranti, the song too will see Shah Rukh flying kites. In fact, the trailer of Raees gave us a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan flying a kite on the rooftop.
Udi Udi Jaye is composed and produced by Ram Sampath with lyrics by Javed Akhtar. The track is sung by Sukhwinder Singh, Bhoomi Trivedi, and Karsan Sagathia.
Directed by National Award Winning filmmaker Rahul Dholakia, RAEES is the fictitious story of a man named Raees (Shah Rukh Khan), set in early 1980’s to 1990’s Gujarat, India. The film explores how Raees’ relationships and meteoric rise helped him build an entire empire from scratch, to make him the single most powerful man in the state, who is revered, loved and feared. Raees eliminates every opposition that comes his way however his downfall will be crossing paths with the no-nonsense police officer Majumdar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), whose sole reason for existence is the elimination of crime. What ensues next is a tumultuous battle between the two, which forms a key defining element of the film’s narrative. RAEES also stars renowned actress Mahira Khan who makes her Indian film debut and Atul Kulkarni known for his National Award Winning performances in films such as Hey Ram and Chandini Bar.
