‘Dhadak’ song ‘Pehli Baar’: 'Love at first sight' for Janhvi, Ishaan

A soulful romantic track "Pehli baar hai ji pehli baar hai ji, is kadar kisi ki dhoon sawar hai ji" from 'Dhadak' was released today and the song is equally soothing to the ears as well as to the eyes. The song shows how Ishaan saw Janhvi Kapoor for the first time and fell in love with her.

Karan Johar and director Shashak Khaitan shared the latest track on their social media handles. "The burst of first love! Love is in the air," Karan Johar wrote.

Composed by Ajay-Atul and lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the track ‘Pehli Baar’ is a recreation of the Marathi track Yad Lagla from the original flick ‘Sairat’. Atul Gogavale was roped in for the song. He also sung the original one.  

Talking about ‘Dhadak’, the film is a Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster ‘Sairat’. The film stars Ishaan Khatter opposite Janhvi. The team shot in Rajasthan, Mumbai and now Kolkata. 

Director Shashank Khaitan earlier informed about the film, "Dhadak is a title, a word and quite relatable. We are really excited about the film.  was always very excited to go to two new fresh faces and see how it works. Janhvi and Ishaan get a sense of innocence to the table and that's what we will capitalize on." 

Khaitan further said about the film’s script, "The basic premise is of differences in caste, honour killing and what it means to survive in that world and I feel that is the conflict that is alive all across India, you will hear stories like that. So in that sense, the basic premise (of Dhadak and Sairat) is same. But there are variations."
