Right from the time the film's trailer was out, it became a buzzing topic -  be it the performances, Neil Nitin Mukesh's Sanjay Gandhi avatar and the overall intensity of the film.

Now, the latest song from the film - Chadhta Sooraj - has been released on YouTube. It is a qawwali number sung by Mujtaba Aziz who is the son of Aziz Nazan who originally sang this number and made it popular among music lovers.

This reloaded version of the original song has been composed and picturised keeping in mind the backdrop of the film. The qawwals (musicians) are shown sitting on a stage of a massive hall (possibly a hotel restaurant).

Neil Nitin Mukesh, as Sanjay Gandhi is also seen sitting among the audience. The song is catchy and at the same time has deeper meanings associated to it. Though, it is not as earthy as the original song, but does justice to it.

The song has clips from the film interspersed in it and hence the gravity and effect of the song is maximised. Indu Sarkar, stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Supriya Vinod, Kirti Kulhari, and Anupam Kher in integral roles. It is slated to release on 28 July.

Here is the song:
