Even as the fight between Ajay Devgn Productions' Son Of Sardaar and Yash Raj Films' Jab Tak Hai Jaan boils away with the Competition Committeee rejecting Ajay Devgn's petition against YRF, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer released a new song today. Titled Heer, it features a lovelorn Katrina Kaif playing the guitar and reminiscing her days spent with Shah Rukh Khan's character Samar.
Heer is a melodious number, unlike the peppy dance number Ishq Shava which was released a few weeks back. The strong lyrics penned by Gulzar is heart rending and soulful and has references to the Punjabi folklore Mirza Sahiban.
It is sung by Harshdeep Kaur, who is best known for Katiya Karoon from Rockstar, and is composed by Oscar award winning music composer A R Rahman.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan is the last film directed by Yash Chopra who died on October 21 and also stars Anushka Sharma. The movie is scheduled to release this Diwali on November 13, 2012.
