DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that ‘Dekhte Dekhte’ from Batti Gul Meter Chalu becomes most viewed Hindi song on YouTube within 24 hours? According to The Times of India, this romantic song has garnered 20 million views in just 24 hours and has been trending on Youtube on number 4. The melody is a modern take on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s composition sung by none other than Atif Aslam.
In it, we will see an unhappy Shahid trying to patch up matters with his girlfriend, played by Shraddha, who is in no mood for it. The song is interspersed with moments from their happier times together; their first date, tender moments, bike rides and first dance. The song shows that they are not on talking terms despite bumping into each other every day. From the look of it, it seems they even travel together but there is a stony silence between them. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' revolves around the problem of electricity theft in a small town of Uttarakhand. Shahid and Shraddha first take a light-hearted dig at the issue of frequent power cuts, but things turn serious when their friend, played by Divyendu Sharma, commits suicide after being harassed to pay a hefty amount as his electricity bill.
