And after tantalizing us with a teaser of her dance number for the Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon starrer, Raabta earlier this morning, Deepika Padukone dropped the peppy title track today and we cannot quite stop RAVING!

Swaying to the sublime beats of the song composed by Pritam, Deepika Padukone channels a drool-worthy look that’s touted to be a crowd puller in this romantic thriller. Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut venture, Raabta was in the news for its lead pair, Sushant Singh Rajput, and Kriti Sanon but this song adds another dimension to look forth to. In the song, Deepika Padukone flaunts her toned legs and crooning the song with some seriously smokey eyes. The song rightfully belongs to the diva with fleeting visions of the lead actors and the action sequences from the movie.

She topped it off with a dazzling presence at the New York Fashion Week 2017 and the pre and post party at the Oscars 2017. While there’s absolutely no doubt that Deepika Padukone is sultry beyond words and is seen oozing a sensual vibe with her thigh-high black gown in the song, this trend looks like Deepika’s go-to style that ‘s a guaranteed head turner. Resorting to ring in the glamour quotient on the international and Indian red carpet scene with her thigh-high slit gowns, Deepika Padukone’s memorable style moments have only made us fall in love every single time!

MTV Europe Music Awards 2016 – Deepika Padukone
The global fashion critics heavily panned Deepika Padukone for her swamp green bralette and skirt combo that was tagged as an unflattering ensemble that did nothing great to her sensational figure and featured military green metallic 3-D embellishments on a heavy-duty bomber jacket, a fitted bodice, and a trailing thigh high slit skirt. But we beg to differ and resonate with the sensibilities of the creator, Monisha Jaising who believed that military green is a functional and strong color. It has a tough, almost androgynous appeal for all of those women warriors out there! Deepika is unstoppable, fit and fierce; making a perfect muse for the Artemisia gown.
