Aithey Aa: New song from Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif's Bharat out
Set in 1983, the peppy dance number is composed by Vishal-Shekhar and voiced by Akasa Singh, Neeti Mohan and Kamaal Khan
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif take over a pre-wedding dance floor in 1983 in the peppy new track from Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. Titled Aithey Aa (‘come hither’), the groovy fusion number is composed by Vishal-Shekhar and voiced by Akasa Singh, Neeti Mohan, and Kamaal Khan. Penned by Irshad Kamil, the song captures the romance between Bharat (Salman) and Kumud (Katrina). Sunil Grover, who plays Bharat’s best friend in the film, is also featured in the track.
Katrina, who has performed some breezy steps in the Aithey Aa, says she worked hard to do justice to her character. “I didn’t even want my usual gym-toned body. Instead, I stuck to yoga and some stretching exercises to stay fit. Kumud works in a hot, sweaty employment exchange in Delhi. So, I had to display the mindset of a single woman battling it out in a man’s world back then. For the 20 days of the schedule, I behaved like Kumud. I didn’t run to the gym after pack up to pump iron or even begin to get out of character. Even after pack-up, I lived in this bubble; sticking to the way Kumud talks, keeping her attitude in mind,” the actor shares.
Bharat is produced by Reel Life Productions and Salman Khan Films. The historical drama film is scheduled to release on June 5, 2019.
