Legendary music composer Jatinder Shah, who has composed music for nearly 100 films over the past 2 decades, and Universal Music Group have teamed up to launch their first song ‘Jodaa’ under VYRL Punjabi. The song is sung by the prolific singer Afsana Khan and the lyrics are written by Maninder Kailey. This music video stars the gorgeous actress Mouni Roy, along with Aly Goni of Big Boss 14 fame.
Jatinder Shah has worn multiple hats, from being a music composer to conceptualizing the video, from the screenplay to directing Jodaa. Sitting in a never-before-seen, breathtaking avatar, Mouni Roy and Aly Goni share an on-screen chemistry befitting their characters. This life-size video treats the audience to such a story in a non-film music video for the first time.
This historical drama is set in the grandeur of a royal palace in Jaipur. Jodaa is a story of love, infidelity, tears and strength, the cornerstones of any relationship. In this fictional story, Mouni plays a queen who fights to win back her love from another woman. She fails to keep her love but comes out stronger and this is an inspiration to many women even in the present day. Jodaa is an ode to women who love unconditionally, endure hardships in life and yet stand out to shine brighter and emerge stronger.
About his first release, Jatinder Shah said: “Jodaa is a beautiful song told from a woman’s perspective and it is definitely one of my most loved creations. The entire team behind this massive collaboration has done a fantastic job. I share a great relationship with the Universal Music team and it was a great experience with them. Afsana’s voice coupled with Mouni and Aly’s on-screen chemistry immaculately brought my creative vision to life. I hope the fans love this brand new avatar I envision and enjoy this experience as much as we did creating it for them.”
Speaking of Jodaa, Afsana said: “I have been listening to Jatinder Shahji’s songs for years and it has always been my dream to work with him. With Jodaa I feel that my dream has now come true. Jodaa is a very beautiful composition with great lyrics. The song emphasizes the empowerment of women and is sure to be a source of inspiration for many women. In addition to giving a great composition, Shahji beautifully conceptualized and directed the video where Mouni and Aly gave a fantastic performance. I’m sure the audience will enjoy this song and shower us with all their love and support for Jodaa”
Mouni Roy was excited about her latest release, saying: “Jodaa holds a special place in my heart because very few actors get the chance to play a character like this and it’s been an amazing journey for me to play the part of a powerful woman to play. I’m glad Shahji cast me for this character and he portrayed my character and story beautifully. It was a great pleasure working with him, Aly and the entire team of VYRL Originals. I look forward to receiving tremendous love and support from the public on Jodaa.”
Commenting on the latest release, Aly Goni said: “Jodaa is definitely a powerful musical film with a great composition and video, directed by Shahji. Afsana’s voice has taken this song to a whole new level. I had a great time recording this song and it was a pleasure working and sharing the screen with Mouni Roy. It was once again a pleasure to work with and the whole team at VYRL. I look forward to receiving all your love and support for Jodaa.”
