After penning down the lyrics for some iconic films like ‘Life In A Metro’, ‘PK’, ‘Bas Ek Pal’, ‘Khoobsurat’, singer and lyricist Amitabh S Verma is all set to release his next song ‘Khelo Shyam Sang Hori’ this Holi. The music video for this foot tapping number is being shot in Vrindavan and it features Riva Arora and Aarush Varma.
While talking about the song, Amitabh S Verma said: “This is traditional bandish which is based on Raag Kafi. It is a very old traditional folk song which has been recreated in a modern way. We have added fresh lyrics to the traditional song, and also added a fresh new orchestration and modern arrangement. The entire song is shot in Vrindavan.”
Briefing about the cast of the music video, he added: “We have two young artists who feature in this song, Riva Arora and Aarush Varma. Riva represents Radha and Aarush portrays the character of Lord Krishna. In Vrindavan, it is believed that every boy is Krishna and every girl is Radha and the song beautifully captures that. Riva has been a part of numerous TV, OTT and films in the past. ‘Rockstar’, ‘Uri’ are a few known ones. Aarush won international accolades with his short film ‘The God and the Blind’ and is now all set for his debut in Bollywood with ‘OMG2’ where he plays Pankaj Tripathi’s son.”
The song is being produced by Shruti Anindita Vermaa and Me 2 Films in association with Uttar Pradesh Braj Vikas Tirth Parishad.
