‘There is no original composer or writer for Jhumka Gira Re,’ says Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani musicologist Pavan Jha – Exclusive | Hindi Movie News

The new song What Jhumka? from Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani was recently dropped and has already become a rage on social media. Composed by Pritam, sung by Arijit, and written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the makers have credited the song to Madan Mohan and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.
Throwing light on the actual composition, Pavan Jha, the musicologist, said to ETimes, “Jhumka gira re song from Mera Saaya starring Sadhana became a popular muhawara, a popular idiom, but Mera Saaya version was not originally composed by Madan Mohan or written by Raja Mehdi Ali khan as it has been credited for Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.It is a part of the oral tradition of folk songs. In 1947, Shamshad Begum sang it for a record, and before that, in 1932, Miss Dulari sang for a record. The Mera Saayadhun has been taken from the Miss Dulari song. In folk songs, there is no original song. It’s the first recorded song, because before that it’s part of our oral tradition.”
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani promises to be a wholesome, big-screen entertainer, blending Karan Johar‘s storytelling finesse with an impressive ensemble cast, grandeur and music. The trailer showed many scenes of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor romancing and fighting, celebrating all kinds of festivals with their families, and possibly a wedding.
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani marks Karan’s return to director’s chair after over six years. The film marks Ranveer and Alia’s second collaboration after their hit film Gully Boy.
