Ringing the marriage bells in authentic Kashmiri style, makers of the film Shikara on Friday dropped the marriage song Shukrana Gul Khile.
Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra announced the discharge of the song and tweeted, "An authentic Kashmiri Pandit wedding of yesteryears. Song out now."
With Kashmiri music setting the tone within the background, the song shows the marriage celebrations of the lead duo.
The authentic ethnic music of the song sung by Munir Ahmad Mir and written by Bashir Arif gives a slice of the Kashmiri culture to the audience.
The video starts with musicians playing traditional instruments and relatives of the couple clapping, dancing and celebrating the marriage .
It further proceeds with the lead couple, Shiv and Shanti, entering the celebrations and getting pictures clicked with their relatives.
With the celebrations of the marriage , the video shows the outbreak of conflict during a parallel note.
The film narrates the story of the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley in 1990 and therefore the bond between the lead actors within the worst of times. The film showcases 40,000 real migrants of Jagti and other camps. It also has real footage from the time of the mass exodus.
The flick is essentially shot within the Kashmir Valley and is being promoted mainly as a journey of affection between the lead couple.
The film has been produced by Vinod Chopra Productions and co-produced by Fox Star Studios.
Shikara is about to hit the theatres on February 7, 2020.
