Shahid, Alia entertain fans at ‘Raita Phail Gaya’ song launch event


Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are busy with the promotional campaign of their upcoming film ‘Shaandaar’. Besides, promoting on small screen, the ‘Shaandaar’ team, along with the film’s director Vikas Bahl, have been launching the songs on a large scale and not just merely releasing them over social media.

The lead pair of the movie Shahid and Alia on Tuesday (October 13) launched the latest song 'Raitaa Phail Gaya' at an event held at Mumbai’s Mehboob Studios. Director Vikas was also present.

The launch was unique as the song was conceived in two versions. The first one had Shahid and Alia doing their antics, while the other one featured all the cast of ‘Shaandaar’ dancing to the number. Both the versions were showcased to the audience present at the launch.

Alia, who is usually seen in pretty girlie dresses, for a change opted for a buttoned-up checked-shirt and black shorts as she joined the boys Shahid and Vikas on the stage. Shahid sported a white T-shirt topped with a peach colour shirt. Both the actors also sported funky shades at the song launch. Alia had her hair in a top knot.

A few days ago, there were reports that Shahid had said that Alia was always busy on the phone talking to some ‘Sid marketing’ apparently referring to Alia’s rumoured boyfriend Siddharth Malhotra. However, at the launch event when Alia was asked about her romantic relationship with her ‘Student of the Year’ co-star, Shahid feigned ignorance of knowing any one by the name Sidharth except a guy from Dharma’s marketing team who shares the same name as the ‘Brothers’ actor.

In the song ‘Raita Phail Gaya’ Shahid and Alia play total mad-caps as the dance insanely to the song along with the other casts of the film.  

Shahid and Alia have been paired on-screen for the first time in ‘Shaandaar’ and their chemistry is fantastic. Shahid plays the role of a wedding planner in the film which is touted to be India’s first destination wedding.

‘Shaandaar’ which also stars Shahid’s father veteran actor Pankaj Kapur, Sanjay Kapoor and Sushma Seth among others is releasing shortly on October 22 on the occasion of Dushera.
