The first song from Dhamaka was unveiled recently, and it's a promotional music video titled Khoya Paaya. The song is picturised on the film's lead actor, Kartik Aaryan, who is seen standing amid a dark setup with lights bouncing off him. The music video also features a few scenes from the film and how his life as Arjun Pathak turns upside down due to an incident. The song was composed, produced, and arranged by Vishal Khurana.

Amit Trivedi and Delraaz Bunshah have sung the song, while the lyrics are penned by Puneet Sharma. Interestingly, it's Bejoy Nambiar who has directed the track while Ravi Varman has shot it. 

Meanwhile, talking about Dhamaka, the film is about a cynical former TV news anchor (Kartik Aaryan) who receives an urgent call on his radio show. He sees it as an opportunity for a career resurrection but at the risk of losing his conscience.

During a recent interaction with a daily, Kartik spoke about his role in the film. He said that Dhamaka is the most difficult film he has ever worked on, and Arjun Pathak is the toughest character he has ever portrayed. The actor revealed that he is a high-spirited person in actuality, so he felt slightly more at ease when he performed a few of his prior projects, which were rom-coms.

On the other hand, Dhamaka forced Kartik to stretch his acting abilities because he portrayed a journalist. The actor further shared that his preparation had increased and become more extensive. For a better understanding, Kartik researched the lives of news reporters and watched documentaries. 

The Luka Chuppi actor had plenty of time to immerse himself in this role during the coronavirus lockdown. Kartik explained that Arjun's persona is multilayered and intense, so he worked hard to bring him to life in every manner possible.

The film is directed by Ram Madhvani, and he co-wrote the script with Puneet Sharma. Dhamaka is based on the 2013 Korean film The Terror Live.

Dhamaka will be available on Netflix starting November 19, 2021.
