VYRL ORIGINALS AND MOHIT SURI’S INTEZAAR

MITHOON, ARIJIT SINGH &  ASEES KAUR  BROUGHT TOGETHER
The creative trio of Mohit Suri, Mithoon and Arijit Singh have come together for the very first time for a non-film song ‘Intezaar’. This song is composed and written by Mithoon and features  Arijit Singh and Asees Kaur. The video stars India’s television stars Sanaya Irani and Gurmeet Chaudhary who bring alive the ballad in the larger than life music video.
THE INSPIRATION
It comes from the yearning for those in love where you continue to live in hope, even after the relationship has ended.  Intezaar brings alive two contrasting sets of emotions; one where a person is living in hope that his love may return and the other where one has gracefully accepted the end and moved on.
ONE-OF-ITS’S-KIND NON-FILM MUSICAL EXPERIENCE
Arijit Singh and Asees Kaur have soulfully expressed these emotions in their inimitable style.  Directed by Arif Khan, the music video depicts the highs and lows of a relationship through contemporary dance interlaced with poignant story telling.
Speaking about Intezaar, Mithoon says “Mohit and I always like to work on a thought when it comes to any song. He gave me the idea to come up with a song which talks about yearning and hoping against hope. I responded by giving him this melody and he got very excited about it. He initially wanted to use it in Aashiqui 2, but later on, we both felt it wasn’t fitting in the narrative of the film. Time passed but we both held on to this song very dearly in our hearts. Even Arijit would keep asking me about where are we going to use it. Earlier this year, VRYL Originals approached me to do a project with them and Mohit kept pushing me to do something in the non-film space. I reworked on theentire structure of the song and added the voice of Asees Kaur, who I think elevated the song with her honesty. Finally, it all came together as a true musical experience”
Speaking about this latest release, Mohit Suri says “Mithoon and I have an association that goes back two decades. Whenever we have worked on music it has never meant to be delivered as a super hit but just something that we both believe in. I have been after Mithoon to do something in the non-film music space because I believe his music is beyond films. I am very happy that Arijit and Asees have lent their voice to this composition. I had acertain vision for this song and Arif Khan has taken the video a notch higher.Both Gurmeet and Sanaya have not just enacted the video but felt every word of the song.”
Speaking about the song, Asees Kaur says “I was roped in at a very last stage of this project. Mithoon Sir was looking for a female voice and that’s when Vinit from VYRL Originals recommended me to Mithoon Sir for which I will be grateful to him forever.”
Speaking about the new song, Vinit Thakkar, Senior Vice President, Universal Music India & South Asia, shares, “VYRLOriginals is an artist first music platform which has been at the forefront of creating a category and culture of non-film music in India.  Intezaar has been a dream project for us at VYRL”
