Aamir Khan unveiled 'Kahani', the first song from his upcoming release Laal Singh Chaddha, on Thursday.

The song is sung by Mohan Mannan, with composition by Pritam. Amitabh Bhattacharya has written the lyrics.

Lately, the superstar had been posting videos of himself playing cricket, foosball and Beethoven’s melody on a piano, promising viewers that he is going to tell them a ‘Kahani’ on April 28. The song was first released on 93.5 Red FM.

Later, sharing the song, the social media handle of Aamir Khan Productions wrote: "Loved all your guesses for #KyaHaiKahani :) Time to reveal the Kahani! Thrilled to share #Kahani , a very special song from #LaalSinghChaddha. We hope Pritam, Amitabh and Mohan's magic will leave you with an everlasting smile!"

Aamir chose to not release the video of the song but only the audio so that the audience can focus on the music.

“I truly believe that the songs in Laal Singh Chaddha are the soul of the film and this album has some of my career’s best songs. It was an intentional decision to put Pritam, Amitabh, the singers and technicians in the spotlight because not only do they deserve to be centre stage but also the music deserves its due credit. I can’t wait to see how audiences react to the music that the team has poured their heart and soul into,” said Aamir.

Pritam praised Aamir’s move to promote artists. “Aamir Khan is a hero both onscreen and off it. He understands that music needs to be under the spotlight at times and has allowed it to take centre stage in his films. It's the most fantastic and satisfying experience working with him on his films,” he said.

Singer Mohan also informed that the songs will be in audio format only for a while so that the audience doesn’t get distracted by the video and focuses on the melody.

Kahani, or the ‘feather song’, as it’s referred to internally, is a beautiful composition by Pritam and is written by the incomparable Amitabh Bhattacharya. I am super glad I got to sing it and can’t wait for everyone to listen to it too,” said Mohan.

Lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya said, "I have tried my best to encapsulate the soul of the film through the lyrics of this song. It was a beautiful experience and I am so happy that the release of this song is going to be a novel experience for all of us.”

Laal Singh Chaddha also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya, which marks his debut in Bollywood. It is directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios, and Paramount Pictures. The film is a Hindi remake of the 1994 American film Forrest Gump which itself is based on Winston Groom's 1986 novel of the same name. It is slated for theatre release on August 11, 2022.
