Aamir Khan launches ‘Papa Kehte Hain 2.0’ for Rajkummar Rao’s new role of Srikanth

The latest song from Rajkummar Rao’s new film ‘Srikanth – Aa Raha Hai Sabki Aankhein Kholne’ is the classic Papa Kehte Hain, launched in a grand and unique way in Mumbai.

The song was performed live by a visually impaired band to a standing ovation, in the presence of the OG star of the song Aamir Khan – who first performed the number for his 1980s film debut in ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ – along with the incredible cast of Rao, Alaya F, Sharad Kelkar, director Tushar Hiranandani, music maestro Udit Narayan, and producer Nidhi Parmar Hiranandani.

The band also performed another iconic song from the film, Ae Mere Humsafar. Papa Kehte Hain 2.0 is sung by Udit Narayan, music has been recreated by Aditya Dev, while the original music is given by Anand Milind. The lyrics of the song were written by the legendary Majrooh Sultanpuri.

It has been used in Rao’s new film which is all about a world with odds stacked against Srikanth (Rajkummar Rao), who defies norms, blazing a trail from rural India to becoming the first visually impaired student at MIT. As he builds Bollant Industries, his success brings challenges for which he would not only chase personal dreams but safeguard a shared future for the ones just like him.

This is the tale of an entrepreneur`s triumph and sacrifice, both which he welcomed with open arms and a smile.

Gulshan Kumar and T-Series are behind this T-Series Films & Chalk N Cheese Films Production LLP, directed by Tushar Hiranandani, and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar & Nidhi Parmar Hiranandani.

Actor Rajkummar Rao has been winning hearts with the trailer of ‘Srikanth – Aa Raha Hai Sabki Aankhein Kholne’. While his performance is already being lauded, the hard work is seen through and through. Recently, Rajkummar shared how he consciously chose to stay in the skin of his character all the time on set.

He recalled an incident when producer Bhushan Kumar visited him on set, but he was so engrossed with his character that he remained in the zone of being Srikanth even as he met Bhushan Kumar. This stance of the actor left the producer visibly impressed.
