Lead pair – Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor of Vikas Bahl’s forthcoming film, ‘Shaandaar’ have been pretty wrapped up with activities for the film and the team has succeeded in piquing everybody’s interest especially due to their one-of-a kind strategies.
The film’s latest song, ‘Neend Na Mujhko Aaye’ was launched in a Mumbai coffee shop at midnight on Thursday (October 9).
A rendition of Asha Bhosle’s age-old classic, by the same name, ‘Neend Na Mujhko Aaye’ is pictured on Alia and Shahid who play insomniac in the film.
Struggling through sleepless nights, Shahid is seen tossing and turning restlessly, while a wide-awake Alia tries to pass the time with midnight snacks and some torch light reading.
Finally, the pair find comfort in each other’s company, while the whole world sleeps.

Shahid also shared the song on Twitter.
Previously talking about the film, director Vikas Bahl had said, “Shahid and Alia are playing characters who are suffering from insomnia, which is, inability to get sleep. Insomnia is something most people have gone through at some point in their life which makes the film and their characters extremely relatable.”
‘Shaandaar’ will hit screens on October 22.
