WEB DESK: Shandaar just launched its next song– neend na mujh ko aey— a remix from the 1950s. There is a reason the song has been put in the movie, as it revolves around insomnia.
In the movies Shahid and Alia Bhat, connect to each other on the phone– when they are both online and unable to sleep.
Shandaar’s director Vikas Bahl said, “One night I was thinking and going through my phone. And that’s where I realised that most people who are awake at night keep posting (on social media) about being awake. So I said to myself that if people are awake the whole night, it is the perfect time to have an affair. Any two people who are awake late in the night, could chat with each other and then the story follows from there,” Bahl said.
Talking about his own spell of insomnia, Shahid Kapoor said, “Insomnia is something people are yet to identify in common people. It’s a big problem today, especially in big cities. Being an insomniac, I used to hang out at late night with my other friends who also face the same problem.”
“Making insomnia as an angle of the film is the nicest way to make people know about this. So while making a song, we thought this old classic went so well with the theme. It’s a cool idea to use the song. The song tells the tale of two individuals who connect because they are both insomniacs and eventually they fall in love.”
