Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh is slated to release on this Friday, February 14 but the wait is proving difficult what with its superb tracks, trailer, and performances. Today, a new song Azadi from the film has been dropped and it is definitely going to make it to everyone’s playlist now.
While the full song was already available on the jukebox, the video showcases the rebels and the carefree characters. Kalki Koechlin makes an entry in this song and proves that she is a free spirit. Ranveer is seen stealing cars and changing number plates while we also get to see the love story between Alia and Ranveer. We also get to see the spontaneity and spunk of Alia’s character. Azadi also highlights the angst and struggles of the youth as well as Ranveer’s rebellious character who is trying to break the mould and lead a better life.
Azadi has been composed, sung and written by Dub Sharma and Divine with backing vocals from Ankur Tewari. The song gives an in-depth analysis of how life is and what we make of it. It speaks about life’s trials and tribulations and why we live a forbidden, claustrophobic and forbidden life.
