The makers of Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi starrer Dil Bechara on Sunday released the uplifting number, “Khulke Jeene Ka”. Composed by AR Rahman, the song has been sung by Arijit Singh and Shashaa Tirupati. It has been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
“Khulke Jeene Ka” is a chirpy, optimistic song with its overlapping vocals urging people to live freely and unrestrained from the worries of life. “Khulke Jeene Ka” also sounds really great overall, both in terms of Arijit Singh and Shashaa Tirupati’s vocals as well as its background music (interspersed with pleasing and gentle guitar and flute tunes), which is pretty catchy. It is instantly addictive.
Talking about “Khulke Jeene Ka”, Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra said, “This song is an integral part of the film and is shot all over Paris. The song is about the joy of living.”
He added, “There are so many memories from the shoot. All the fun we had. We foodies were in a city famous for its cuisine and we experimented with all kinds of food. Sushant who loved pasta tried all the best pasta in the city. After packup, we would go hunting for the best meals.”
Shashaa Tirupati also spoke about the song. She said, “Singing for A. R. Rahman for such a special film was exciting and surreal. The other thrill was that of co-singing with Arijit Singh, whom I admire for his versatility. Khulke Jeene Ka is a distinct track with a unique melody that slides like a rollercoaster ride. The lyrics of the song had certain words that I probably heard after a long time, such as beadab, latifa and saleeqa. These words have been embedded tastefully and in a very current way into the song. I had fun singing this duet and I can’t wait to know what listeners have to say about it.”
Dil Bechara is a Hindi film adaptation of John Green’s novel The Fault in Our Stars. The movie also stars Swastika Mukherjee, Sahil Vaid and Saif Ali Khan. It will release digitally on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24.
