The new song of Chennai Express to hit the charts is Kashmir main tu Kanyakumari. As it’s obvious from the lyrics, the song celebrates the tryst of north and south -- love between a North Indian guy and a South Indian girl.
King Khan Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, the song may appeal to a few but its video is surely interesting. Shot in the tea estates of Munnar with a big crew, the video has everything from the Kathakali dancers, Pulikali (Tiger dance of South) performers to lungi-clad girls and boys.
King Khan Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone weave their magic in the video with their different looks. Don’t miss King Khan Shahrukh Khan looking every bit a charmer in a lungi paired with a leather jacket and a Fedora hat. Also, Deepika in a South Indian skirt-saree is a delight to watch. Later the actress even changes to shirt, lungi and aviators, matching her dance steps withj King Khan Shahrukh Khan.
The video of the song also has a typical 90s’ feel as the audience can see King Khan Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone enjoying a joy ride in an open gypsy, vehicle commonly used in many songs of the 90s, including the famous track Mitwa from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun! .
The song is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan. Amitabh Bhattacharya has written the lyrics, while music by Vishal-Shekhar. Check out the chorus here: North-South Ki Kat Gayi Dekho Doori Hi Saari.. Kashmir Tu Main Kanyakumari/ Fifty-Fifty Har Situation Mein Hissedari.
