Atrangi Re song Chaka Chak OUT: A.R. Rahman, Shreya Goshal creates magic again with Sara giving a Traditional Touch


Guwahati: The trailer of the Aanand L. Rai directorial ‘Atrangi Re’ starring Akshay Kumar, Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan, gave a glimpse of a classic template of exploration of a new found love. Now the makers have released the first song from the film. Titled ‘Chaka Chak’ the track is set against the backdrop of the engagement of Dhanush’s character and features Sara dancing to the fusion of a folk and classical tune. Composed by maestro A.R. Rahman, the track is laced with Carnatic instruments like Sundari and Thavil and portrays Sara’s character dancing her heart out on her husband’s engagement to another girl.

The song, Sara says, “‘Chaka Chak’, much like the name suggests, is a fully vibrant and colourful song. It’s a celebration of south India, full of drama and fun. Vija’s  choreography, Rahman’s music, Irshad’s lyrics, Shreya Goshal’s voice and Aanand’s vision all combined is a real treat to the senses. 

‘Atrangi Re’ marks the second collaboration between Aanand L. Rai and Dhanush after their highly successful ‘Raanjhanaa’. The film produced by T-Series, Cape Of Good Films and Colour Yellow Productions, and written by Himanshu Sharma, is all set to stream on Disney+ Hotstar from December 24.
