The reprised song Dheere Dheere from Aashiqui, featuring Bollywood superstars Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor, has been on the charts for five weeks now. The number, produced by T-Series and remixed by rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, is the most viral with close to 50 million views on YouTube! It’s quite close – 49,806,533 at last count!
The last time when we had shared the 30 million views story for the Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi song, we talked about how many of us who grew up in the 1990s dislike the new version of the original song Dheere Dheere from the Mahesh Bhatt movie. The new song with some rap and beats is all right for a casual listen, but you cannot ‘feel’ it.
But the music video with Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor‘s chemistry makes it worth it! In spite of glimpses of the Dheere Dheere song being leaked on Instagram by a guy on the shoot in Turkey, Dheere Dheere is one of the most successful singles for T-Series on YouTube – in a short span, that is. An entire new generation loves the music and the video!
When Dheere Dheere hit 20 million views, Hrithik and Sonam chatted on Twitter about the same. We hope they do so after completing 50 million views as well! Watch the Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi song here.
