Rahman-Alia: ‘Pataka’ times
Rahman-Alia: ‘Pataka’ times

The Mozart of music, A R Rahman has created magic with his songs in Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming film, ‘Highway’ staring Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt. The music of the film has become a sensation and is topping the charts. Not many know that when the film started, initially it was supposed to have just a background score which Rahman had to compose.

But as the journey progressed on the ‘highway’, songs and more songs became a part of the film. Now when the film is complete, it has no less than 8 tracks and a background score as well! Now, who can stay away from the magic of the Oscar winner, A R Rahman?!

The song ‘Pataka guddi…’ is a rage and to come up with the male version of the track sung by Rahman himself was a treat, but it doesn’t end there… The makers have decided to make a special video featuring Alia Bhatt and A R Rahman in the male version of the song. ‘Pataka guddi…’ happens to be Rahman’s first Punjabi track.

The video has been shot exclusively for the song, post the completion of the film and will be released on February 15. This seems like a double treat, to hear and see Rahman in a music video.
