Ever since audiences first saw the fascinating trailer for Shakun Batra’s Gehraiyaan fans have been eager to know, see and hear more. Besides the brilliant performances by Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa and the intriguing story, one of the other things that really stood out was the song that played in the trailer.
We now know that that song is ‘Doobey’! Designed by Ankur Tewari, the alluring song with a very cool sound is composed by Kabeer Kathpalia a.k.a OAFF and Savera, written by Kausar Munir and sung by Lothika Jha.
Speaking of the first song, Ankur Tewari shared, “From the onset I knew that the music of Gehraiyaan had to be true to its story and allow the audiences to be absorbed into the world of these characters. Kabeer, Savera and our lyricist Kausar, have all done a phenomenal job at bringing in the youthful essence yet keeping the intrigue intact! And Lothika’s vocals add the right amount of freshness and intensity to the song.”
Adding further, musician Kabeer Kathpalia aka OAFF says, “It was an incredible experience to work on this film and its music. The adoration that we have been receiving since the first teaser, has been extremely special and definitely humbling. With Doobey, we wanted to recreate the feeling of freefalling; the heady rush of a new relationship, of being in love. Gehraiyaan truly a special album for each of us and we’re really hoping the audience enjoys listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
