Watching the video of Bhangra Ta Sajda from Veere Di Wedding starring Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania gives you a strong sense of deja vu…like you have walked out of a wedding into a song. A melange of colours, the song may just be the antidote to those experiencing a huge #SonamKiShaadi hangover.
A quintessential shaadi song, it ropes in the whole family. Based on the boliyantradition in lower Punjab, it is sung by a man – in this case – Sumeet Vyas – who looks at Kareena with longing.
Composed by Sachdev, the song is sung by Neha Kakkar, Romy, Surya Raghunathan and Shashwat Sachdev. Bankrolled by Shobha Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor and Nikhil Dwivedi, Veer Di Wedding is slated to hit the theatres on June 1.
A song apparently of reminiscences, it features two surprises – Vivek Mushran and Anjum Rajabali.
Veteran actor Manoj Pahwa, who plays Kareena’s father-in-law in the film, says (to IANS) the story has a modern outlook that emphasises the freedom of choice women have in the new age society.
