Rajkumar Santoshi’s Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh has been constantly making headlines since the first look of the film came out. The unique concept of opposite ideologies shared by Nathuram Godse and Mahatma Gandhi has become a talking point for many, across the nation. After dropping an engrossing and captivating trailer, the makers of the film have now unveiled their first song- Vaishnav Jan To.
The song ‘Vaishnav Jan To’ is composed by the supremely talented A R Rahman and was originally written by Late Narsinh Mehta. The song is presented by Jackky Bhagnani’s record label JJust music and sung in the melodious voice of Shreya Ghoshal. The song touches the emotional chords in your heart and also raises the emotion of patriotism at the same time.
Speaking about the song, A R Rahman mentioned,
“Rajkumar Sir is a legend and working on music for him was a great experience. Vaishnav Jan To is also one of the special songs because it was Gandhi Ji’s favorite. This song brought a sense of peace whenever I worked on it and I am sure it will bring the same peace and love in the hearts of my audience as well.”
Tanisha Santoshi shared,
“Everything about Gandhi Godse is a treasure I will always cherish. Vaishnav Jan To was my first song. Since it is in the Gujarati language I had to prep for it days in advance. Also, there was an added pressure of the legendary singer Shreya Ghoshal ma'am lending me her vocals along with AR Rahman's sir's music so I had to give it my best. The song didn't have any dance steps obviously so I had to make it as expressive as possible through my emotions and eyes. But all in all, it was an exhilarating experience for me.”
