The first song of Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Raabta, Ik Vaari Aa is out. Sung by Arijit Singh and composed by Pritam, the song begins with Kriti seeing Sushant off at a railway platform. Sushant runs to catch his train but Kriti isn’t convinced about them parting ways, for the time being, we suppose. She turns back and sprints to catch a last glimpse of Sushant, before they meet again. What follows next is a beautiful goodbye between the two, as they exchange a romantic smile and glance. Sushant reminisces the moments he spent with Kriti throughout his journey. So does Kriti, who almost imagines Sushant’s presence around her at most times.
Groovy, peppy and fresh, is about parting ways, but only to meet again. It doesn’t dwell on the sadness associated with lovers having to separate for several reasons. In the opinion of Twitter, the song is about ‘happy separation’. One minute into the song and you realise that the distance has actually brought the two closer. They do not sulk thinking about each other’s absence. At one point, Kriti is so lost in love that she kisses a stranger through the glass, imagining him to be Sushant. Well.
Sushant also shared a cute GIF of Kriti and him to announce the release of Ik Vaari Aa. Earlier this morning, actor Rajkummar Rao’s look was revealed from the film. Rajkummar plays a 324-year-old man and the look was approved after going through 16 look tests. Here’s Rajkummar’s look from the film.
Directed by Dinesh Vijan, Raabta releases on June 9. The film also stars Jim Sarbh of Neerja fame.
