Bollywood What's Happenin'

Barfi!'s "Aashiyan" a musical treat

The soundtrack of Anurag Basu’s upcoming Barfi! just keeps getting better! Take a listen to Aashiyan, the latest musical offering from the film.

While it retains the playful attitude of Ala Barfi, this one adds a dreamier, more romantic touch. And the fact that music director Pritam seems to extend his French-inspired approach to this number too isn’t entirely a bad thing: put the video aside and it’s easy to imagine oneself strolling down the Champs-Elysees to this song, croissant and café au lait in hand.

Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Bollywood debutante Ileana D’Cruz, Barfi! hits theaters on September 14th. It’s the tale of the impish antics and romantic pursuits of deaf and mute Barfi (Ranbir), and of what unfolds when he encounters the beautiful Shruti (Ileana) and the autistic Jhilmil (Priyanka).

Picturesque settings in the Himalayan city of Darjeeling, a spotlight on some of the most promising actors of this generation. September 14th can’t come soon enough! Be sure to catch Barfi this fall!
