On Monday, Alia Bhatt revealed the 2nd song, Deva from her forthcoming movie Brahmastra, with Ranbir Kapoor. Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, the film portrays the tale of astraverse where Ranbir portrays the role of Shiva and Alia appears as Isha, his love interest. The new song captures the essence of Ranbir’s journey as Agni Astra.
The devotional song begins with a glimpse of Ranbir Kapoor training and playing with his fire in the forest as the Agni Astra. All about praising Lord Shiva, the earworm is packed with creative visuals. It likewise stars Alia and Amitabh Bachchan. Deva is composed by Pritam, sung by Arijit Singh and Jonita Gandhi, and written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Posting the video, Alia Bhatt penned, “Feel the fire within Deva Deva out now!!!” Responding to the song, a fan commented, “Arijit…is irreplaceable no one in this world can sing so soulfull except him.” “OMG… Deva Deva…. Goosebumps,” added another said.
Speaking about the song, earlier director Ayan Mukerji said in a post, “A song in which our protagonist Shiva finally unlocks his powers. And in doing this, he fills all the fire around him with divine energy. Like Lord Shiva sitting cross-legged in dhyaan (meditation)… the first image of meditation in this entire Universe. A song in which our hero Shiva achieves his potential by understanding that to control the fire outside, he needs to first… Feel the fire within.”
“A song that has given me so much energy since Pritam (Dada) created it…Given me strength whenever things have been tough… I’ve truly listened to it before every big meeting I had to take in the last few years. Given me dance when I’ve played it to my friends in the middle of the night. Given me moments of singing loudly and badly in the car when I’m driving around alone. Most importantly, give soul to my life andBrahmastra (which is one and the same thing)!” he further said about how the song has created an impact.
