After sharing with us the beautiful trailer of Laila Majnu, the makers released the heartbreaking song, Aahista, today.
Arijit Singh, who crooned the song had a heart filled message for Imtiaz Ali the moment he heard Aahista.
It is not possible NOT to have Arijit Singh’s soulful voice in an intense love story. Imtiaz Ali who has penned Laila Majnu wanted to get Arijit on board to portray the pain and angst of love between Laila and Majnu in this song.
