Karan calls Cutiepie the 'Filmi' song of the year, and we agree. Featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, this desi number with a quirky anglicized twist is certain to become a wedding favourite.
Unlike Channa Mereya, a pathos-filled ballad about longing and love, which also features parts of Anushka's wedding the film, Cutiepie is a much happier take on the affair. Ranbir dons the groom's guise with a sherwani and turban, and sings about the girl who isn't a regular bride, but rather a colloquially termed 'banno' who's big on social media and can't get enough of her phone. The lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Composed by Pritam and featuring the unique vocals of Pardeep Singh Sran and Nakash Aziz, Cutiepie gives us more insight into the fun-filled friendship (and love) between Ranbir and Anushka in the film. The actress not only joins her co-star in shaking a leg, but we simply can't get enough of their oddball expressions.
Karan and Anushka shared the first look of the song over the weekend, and now that the song is out, we're pleased.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan. It features a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan, and hits theatres this Friday.
