Imtiaz Ali's upcoming Shah Rukh-Anushka-starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal's new song is out. The song is called 'Butterfly' and is a typical desi-Punjabi song that shows the Harinder side of Shah Rukh's character Harry.

Khan's character Harry takes a departure from being the tharkikharaab character of a tour guide in Europe to India's pind da munda donning a pagdi (turban) and looking convincingly every bit of a Punjabi.

The song also features Anushka aka Sejal in a traditional Punjabi avatar, dancing to the tunes of Bhangda in the most-quintessentially-Punjabi settings.

The duo are seen dancing in village farms of Punjab, over a hay stack, with colourful clothing and many background dancers. The teaser ends with both of them doing Sejal's hand-wave movement.

Sony Music India took to Twitter on 12 July to unveil the Butterfly song teaser. They asked people to tweet using #ButterflyTeaser in order to unlock the teaser.

In the film, Khan in the role of a tourist guide from Punjab while Sharma plays a Gujarati girl. What follows is an entertaining affair. The romantic drama was widely shot in Prague, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Budapest and it marks the third time that Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have been paired together after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Here's the new song:
