Ahead of the release of Vidya Balan-starrer, Sherni, Amazon Prime Video released a foot-tapping song, which is sung by Akasa and Raftaar. The song will feature an interesting mix of personalities like Mira Erda (F4 racer and driving coach), Natasha Noel (body positivity influencer and yoga trainer), Eshna Kutty (a social media influencer and hula-hoop dancer) and Trinetra Haldar (one of the first transgender doctors in Karnataka), Jayshree Mane (a front line warrior at B.Y.L Nair Hospital), Riddhi Arya (A student who delivers food to frontline warriors), Anita Devi (Security Guard), Seema Duggal (Teacher), Archana Jadav (House Help) along with Vidya Balan. It salutes and applauds the courage of these Shernis, who have stood their ground, beaten the odds and have carved their niche by not conforming to the traditional. Penned by Raghav, Main Sherni is composed by Utkarsh Dhotekar. The song will go live on all music platforms: Amazon Prime Music, Spotify, Gaana, Saavn, Wynk etc on June 15.

Speaking about the song Vidya Balan says, “The music video Main Sherni is our tribute to all the women across the globe who have this indomitable spirit of never giving up. Sherni is special for all of us and with this film and music video, we are celebrating women who have shown us that there is nothing a woman can’t do. Just like Vidya Vincent, my character in the movie, we want to show that women are fearless and powerful ... and that you don’t have to roar to be a tigress. This is what we have tried to capture in this anthem .”

The movie releases on Amazon Prime Video on June 18.
