Before Amazon Prime Original Series‎ Mirzapur returns with its second season, its lead actor Ali Fazal has collaborated with the show’s creator Gurmmeet Singh for a romantic music video titled “Aaj Bhi”.

The single, sung by Vishal Mishra of Kabir Singh fame, also features television star Surbhi Jyoti. Created for Vryl Originals, it’s slated to release on Thursday.

“It’s the first time I am working with Surbhi and Vishal. It’s been super interesting. I loved interacting with Vishal. He has such a mesmerising voice. He has a soulful singing quality. Vishal and I bonded over our Lucknow connect. Surbhi is super cool and we kept chatting about movies and food. The four days in Chandigarh were such a blast,” Ali Fazal said in a statement.

Talking about reuniting with Gurmmeet Singh, Ali said it was interesting to experience a different space with the director – a departure from his menacing avatar in Mirzapur. The single also gave the actor an opportunity to work again with Mirzapur cinematographer Sanjay Kapoor.

“The Mirzapur team is home for me and with Guru and Sanjay being there, this was a reunion for us. Last few years, I have spent so much time working with Guru that we get each other’s vibes and cues. The direction that Gurmmeet brought into this is a zone he and I have never explored together.

“It was an experience that was truly enjoyable. In the span of 3 minutes, we’ve told an entire story and told it well. As an actor, it’s hard to pull this off. I have never been so excited for a music video, but this song is so genuine. It evokes a feeling that everyone at some point or the other goes through. It’s a unique take on unrequited love. There’s a certain purity in how it plays out,” Ali Fazal said.
