The first song of Brahmastra Part One: Shiva was launched on 17th July. Ever since the teaser of Kesariya was released it had piqued the curiosity of fans to listen to the full song. Ultimately, the romantic track with a vibrant and colorful backdrop has been released almost after 3 months of wait. Surprisingly, according to Ayan Mukerji Kesariya was not supposed to be the first released song of Brahmastra.
Director Ayan Mukerji has mentioned that Kesariya was not on his plans to be released as the first song. Eventually, he unveiled the full song because the buzz the teaser had created was extreme. In order to not disappoint fans, Ayan chose to alter his plans and shelved the song which was supposed to be the first song of Brahmastra.
In an Instagram post, Ayan wrote, “To be honest, I always imagined that we would launch a song which was just about Shiva (Ranbir’s character), as the first song of Brahmāstra. But there was so much warmth for the Kesariya Teaser, that we decided we had to put it out first (or, everyone would kill us)! And now, I can’t imagine it being any other way.”
Kesariya referred to as the Love Anthem of the year is a work of prominent artists. It has been voiced by phenomenal Arjit Singh, composed by legendary Pritam Da, and penned by talented Amitabh Bhattacharya. Putting cherry on the top of this magnificent team, it has been choreographed by none other than Ganesh Acharya.
Earlier to the release of Kesariya director Ayan Mukerji and Alia Bhatt went live on Instagram. During the interaction with fans, Ayan surprised Alia, stating that there are songs that are hidden from her as well. He wishes to open the treasure box by unveiling one song at a time.
A fan asked Ayan about the total number of songs in the film. The director replied, “I would not like to reveal this at this time actually. Let’s keep it one song at a time.” As Alia was surprised, Ayan added, “There are songs that I have hidden away even from Alia.” This led to Alia being even more visibly surprised. Ayan laughed and said to her, “Yes, some of that stuff even you haven’t heard. So yes, one song at a time.”

It is written and directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar under the banners of Dharma Productions. The much-awaited movie is set to make its way to theaters on 9th September 2022.
