It’s refreshing when the most menacing gangster of the web world aka Guddu Bhaiyya turns into a romantic hero for a music video. Yes, you read it right, Ali Fazal is all set to woo his on-screen lady love, Surbhi Jyoti, in an upcoming music video.
Titled Aaj Bhi, the song will be crooned by Vishal Mishra and helmed by Mirzapur creator Gurmmeet Singh for Vryl Originals. Here’s what Ali had to say in regards to the track,
“It’s the first time I am working with Surbhi and Vishal. It’s been super interesting. I loved interacting with Vishal. He has such a mesmerising voice. He has a soulful singing quality. Vishal and I bonded over our Lucknow connect. Surbhi is super cool and we kept chatting about movies and food. The 4 days in Chandigarh was such a blast.”
But what’s better is that the actor reunited with the team of his much-loved show Mirzapur.
“The Mirzapur team is home for me and with Guru and Sanjay (the DOP) being there, this was a reunion for us. Last few years, I have spent so much time working with Guru that we get each other’s vibes and cues. The direction that Gurmmeet brought in to this is a zone he and I have never explored together. It was an experience that was truly enjoyable. In the span of 3 minutes, we’ve told an entire story and tell it well. As an actor it’s hard to pull this off. I have never been so excited for a music video but this song is so genuine. It evokes a feeling that everyone at some point or the other goes through. It’s a unique take on unrequited love. There’s a certain purity in how it plays out.”
