Katrina Kaif’s ‘Manzoor-E-Khuda’ comes at a ‘crucial point’ in Thugs Of Hindostan
By Bryan Durham - November 1, 2018
The third song of Yash Raj Films’ Thugs of Hindostan is out, ahead of its release this Diwali. As opposed to the release of their first song ‘Vashamalle’, the second song ‘Suraiyya’ and now, the third ‘Manzoor-E-Khuda’ only has song teasers released with only the full audio available for streaming.
Given that the film releases on November 8, it’s perfect marketing strategy to tease the audiences enough to go to theatres to enjoy the videos of the full songs featuring Katrina Kaif, a verified crowd-puller.
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya explains the placement of the song in the film. He says, “Manzoor-E-Khuda comes at a very crucial turning point in the film and it had to be a moving, powerful song. I think its lyrics, composition and vocals have created an overwhelming effect, making this salute to being free an incredibly special song. We love the song and we are certain that the audiences will love the spirit of freedom in it.”
‘Manzoor-E-Khuda’ literally means ‘By the will of God’. This track talks about grit and determination of the Thugs. Standing up for freedom, of living as per one’s free will, is the message that’s embedded at the heart of this inspiring song.
Chinni and Rekha Prakash choreograph the track composed by Ajay-Atul, penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya and sung by Sukhwinder Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal.
Thugs of Hindostan is set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
