When you have Gulzar Saab, Vishal Bhardwaj and Arijit Singh working on a love ballad, chances are the end product is going to make the audience weep in unison. With the track La Ilaaj from Alia Bhatt's upcoming film Darlings, that’s exactly what has happened.
While the world got to listen to the song a little later, the media industry in New Delhi was the first to hear it out. What followed after the big reveal was a series of questions about love, longing and dedications.
When the event’s host—the ever charming Neha Dhupia—asked each of the cast members to dedicate the song to a special person or persons, Roshan Mathew dedicated it to the movie itself. While Vijay Varma dedicated the song to Shah Rukh Khan, Vishal Bharadwaj went with his muse, Tabu, saying, “I would like to dedicate this song to Tabu for the reason, you know, she is 'La Ilaaj’ for me and I am 'La Ilaaj' for her, and I like that. Main uske bina kaam nahi kar sakta (I cannot work without her).”
However, it was Alia Bhatt’s answer that got everyone hooting and clapping. Her reply was both sweet and interesting. “Kyunki Dilli dilwalon ka sheher hai, main Dilli waalo ko ‘La Ilaaj’ dedicate karti hun,” she told Neha Dhupia.
Netflix India’s Darlings is a dark comedy featuring Alia Bhatt, Vijay Varma, Shefali Shah, and Roshan Mathew in the leads. The film marks Alia’s debut as a producer, and is releasing globally on August 5, 2022.
