‘Darkhaast’, the romantic track from Shivaay starring Ajay Devgn and Erika Kaar has passion and poignance in equal measure. Shot exquisitely against the Himalayan landscape, the song dwells on intimate moments between the film’s lead couple, who are madly in love.
While the magic of the song will unfold when it breaks online on September 22 at 12 noon, sources say that lyricist Sayyeed Qaudri and music composer Mithoon had a tough task working on it.
It is said that Ajay in his instruction to his music team was clear that each word had to be carefully chosen because Darkhaast isn’t just a song in the film. It is a track that captures the emotions and situation in which the couple are. It’s a crucial part of the narrative because it takes the story forward in rhyme.
The actor-filmmaker graciously admits that Sayyeed and Mithoon are also the storytellers of the film because of their close participation in this composition.
