The soundtrack of Love Aaj Kal reunites Imtiaz Ali, Pritam and Irshad Kamil

The first song of the film, Shayad, was released recently and has been sung by the popular Arijit Singh.


Imtiaz Ali’s much-anticipated romance, Love Aaj Kal, starring Kartik Aaryan & Sara Ali Khan is a contemporary and relatable portrayal of two stories- one set in Udaipur in the early 90s and the other in modern day Delhi. The leads are  seen learning and unlearning from each other's life, thereby showcasing different facets of love, commitment and relationships.

After receiving an impressive response, the team of Love Aaj Kal sheds light the soundtrack of the film which reunites filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, composer Pritam and lyricist Irshad Kamil. This soundtrack promises to be an exciting musical journey and is aptly timed for this Valentine season.

The first song of the film 'Shayad' was released today and it is said that the song brings out the innocence of first love. Sung in his soulful inimitable style by Arijit Singh, Shayad captures the tenderness of first love that resonates generation after generation despite differences in its expression.  

Talking about the song, director Imtiyaz Ali said, "For me, this song is a trip down memory lane. I remember when Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak had just released. The romance in my hometown, Jamshedpur, was heavily influenced by the soundtrack from that film. With Shayad, I’ve tried to recreate that atmosphere."

Sharing the thought about his process, Pritam said, "Shayad speaks of the innocence of first love and how even over time that love remains precious and meaningful. I wanted to invoke the nostalgia of first love with the audience."

Irshad Kamil adds, "The innocence and charm of first love is that there is so much that remains unspoken yet it is fully understood. In Shayad, we have tried to capture that emotion."
