After enthralling music lovers globally with Kesariya that topped all musical charts for three weeks in a row, Sony Music drops yet another beautiful song, Deva Deva, which is the second track from the album Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva.

Deva Deva pulsates with spirituality and a distinctly upbeat rhythm. Sung by Arijit Singh and Jonita Gandhi, composed by Pritam and penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the song encapsulates the magical moment in the film where Shiva, played by Ranbir Kapoor, finds the power within. The lyrics of the song have a unique blend of love and devotion as Shiva, the protagonist, discovers his majestic abilities of fire. The song is pivotal to Shiva’s character development and does absolute justice to the concept of ‘Love, Light and Fire’.

Talking about his song, Ranbir Kapoor shared, “I thoroughly enjoyed the song, and could relate to it on so many levels personally. Pritam-da, Arijit, Amitabh, and (director) Ayan Mukerji have put in a lot of effort to create this masterpiece. The song makes one feel spiritually powerful with a rare ease, and I hope everyone feels and enjoys it as much as I did.”

Sharing his experience about the audiovisual brilliance of the song, director Ayan Mukerji shared, “I don’t think there could have been a better time to release the song than on a Shravan Somvar(Monday in the auspicious Hindu month of Sharvan). The auspicious occasion just syncs with the captivating melody of the song and the spiritual visuals of Ranbir’s character, Shiva, exploring his fire power. I am so grateful for all the love we have received on Kesariya. And I just can’t wait to see how people will react to Deva deva!” He terms this song the core of the film.

Composer Pritam said, “Brahmāstra’s album has made me think aloud in terms of bringing in spiritual elements within a song. With Deva deva, we have modernized the music, while keeping classical and devotional elements prominently. This spiritual song gives an otherworldly experience, and it was honestly enlightening to create it. I hope it’s a treat for everyone.”

Arijit Singh added, “It has been an absolute pleasure to voice Deva deva. The song emanates an impeccable, positive energy that will certainly resonate with everyone. I’m really excited about it.  I hope the audience enjoys it to the fullest.”

Meanwhile, Kesariya continues to have a record response that has thrilled the team.

Produced by Star Studios, Dharma Productions, Prime Focus and Starlight Pictures, the magnum opus Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva will release theatrically on September 9 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada with a stellar ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
