After giving the quintessential romantic rendition shot in the rain, Baarish, the makers of Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor-starrer Half Girlfriend have finally released the much-awaited video song, ‘Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahunga’. The fans wanted the song so badly that the makers decided to release the song prior to the planned date.
And after listening to the song crooned by Arijit Singh and Shashaa Tirupati we must say the wait was worth it. In the three-minute long video song, for the first time, we see Shraddha Kapoor as Arjun Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend and surprisingly more than Arjun aka Madhav Jha, it is Riya Somani aka Shraddha Kapoor who looks love-struck. Also, by the end of the song, Riya is the one who is lost in love and is experiencing the pain of separation from Madhav who loved her unconditionally. Composed by Mithoon, the song is here to stay in the playlist of music lovers as it has all the elements — from soulful lyrics to the soothing voice of Arijit and the heartwarming chemistry between the lead couple, Arjun and Shraddha which make the song a hit.

Manoj Muntashir, the lyricist of the song, penned down the song 16 years back. This we know as Manoj wrote about it on his Twitter handle, “I wrote #PhirBhiTumkoChahunga 16 years back while I was on my Kashmir trip. I had no intention or idea of using it in a film later.”
