Secret Superstar, the story of fifteen-year-old Insia’s journey of becoming a famous singer with the help of music composer Shakti Kumaarr played by Aamir Khan, is being appreciated by celebrities and critics alike. And while the cine fans are waiting to watch Secret Superstar on Diwali with bated breath, the makers of the movie have released a new track from the movie, titled, “Gudgudi”.
The visuals of the song portray the deep and irreplaceable bond between a mother (Meher Vij) and her daughter (Zaira Wasim). Like any mother whose biggest treasure is her children, Meher gifts a new laptop to Zaira despite her stern refusal. The sweet number has been crooned by Sunidhi Chauhan and the music has been given by Amit Trivedi. Lyricist Kausar Munir has brought out beautifully how a small thing like a laptop can bring happiness when you have your loved ones around to celebrate life. You might end up reminiscing happy times when you had your many firsts with your family after watching this two-minute long video song.
The Indian Express movie reviewer Shubhra Gupta in her review of this Aamir Khan produced movie was all praises for the Dangal girl Zaira as she wrote, “We are left with young Insiya and her shining face, a beacon of hope for herself and girls in her situation. I liked her enormously, and Wasim plays her with great brio, a mix of sparkle and tentativeness.”
However, Aamir went a step ahead to spread a word about the movie and organised a screening for the media and for his friends and colleagues in the industry. The ones to attend the screening included Sachin Tendulkar, Rekha, Ranbir Kapoor, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rajkummar Rao among others. And as they came out of the theatres, all the celebrities had good things to say about the film. Nawazuddin Siddiqui tweeted, “#SecretSuperstar D Best Film of d year.V Inspiring.Commendable Performances by all d Actors including Tirth. Congrats @aamir_khan #AdvaitC.,” and Rajkummar Rao asked people to watch the film. He wrote, ““#SecretSuperstar Such a heartwarming&inspiring film. Do urselves a favour, go watch it.
