Sonam Kapoor and Shekhar Ravjiani who will feature in the soon to be released Neerja had a fun interaction with their fans via a live chat on Facebook. The talented duo launched a new track ‘Gehra Ishq’ on Fox Star’s official Facebook page. Not only did Shekhar sing the song live but they also answered numerous questions posted by their fans using the #LivewithSonamandShekhar.
The song is an emotional number featuring Sonam and Shekhar. It has been sung by Shekhar Ravjiani and the music has been composed by Vishal Khurana.
Shikha Kapur, CMO Fox Star Studios says, ‘’The new track from Neerja – Gehra Ishq, is a simple charming love song, fresh from the genius pen of Prasoon Joshi, put to music with affection by the young Vishal Khurana, and sung with a lilting innocence by the talented Shekhar Ravjiani, who also debuts as an actor in this film. On screen, Shekhar and Sonam Kapoor share a comfortable chemistry, and it’s this chemistry that is organically reflected in the music video of the song. We feel Gehra Ishq is poised to be the love song that will speak to the youth on the various hues of romance, and will connect with them on an intimate level. It stands to reason that we partner with a huge youth platform like Facebook – with whom we have a long-standing mutually beneficial relationship – and launch the song, with Shekhar doing a live rendition with Sonam, in front of a virtual logged in audience. This was one more innovative way of connecting with the all-important youth demographic, and communicate the very essence of the film Neerja.’’
Sonam says, ‘’Gehra Ishq is one of my favourite songs because I listen to it everyday. It is beautifully written and I think it is sung with a lot of emotion, pain & love. I think it’s really really gorgeous and it’s been composed stunningly by Vishal. I can’t believe such a young voice has such depth!”
Shekhar added, ‘’Gehra Ishq is one of the most beautifully written songs. It is about Jaideep’s love for Neerja, how deep it is how intense it is and at the same time there is a lot of understanding of it.”
The anticipation for the film is building day by day!
Directed by Ram Madhvani, Neerja is produced by Bling Unplugged and Fox Star Studios, presented by Fox Star Studios, and the movie is slated to release on February 19th, 2016.
