Karan Johar: The Breakup Song is all about women empowerment

The breakup song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is striking the right chords and sending out a message that a breakup doesn’t always have to end on a sour note and in tears. Filmmaker Karan Johar says the song is all about women empowerment.

The song shows Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor celebrating a breakup, and is all about how moving on can be easy. “‘The breakup song’ is all about women empowerment. Breaking up should be as quick and easy as falling in love,” Karan said in a statement.

Karan talked about the song when actress Neha Dhupia inquired about it at an award function. With Pritam’s music, the quirky and fun dance number is sung by Arijit Singh, Badshah, Jonita Gandhi and Nakash Aziz.

Amid all the hullabaloo over the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, Karan is excited about the film and has not given out a statement on the stir yet.

While the debate on whether Pakistani artistes should be allowed to work in India or not post the tension between the nations is still on, Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India’s (COEAI) passed a judgment that they will not allow Ae Dil Hai Mushkil to release in single screen theatres across Maharashtra, Goa and Gujarat. Directed and produced by Karan under his home banner Dharma Productions, the movie about unrequited love, stars Ranbir, Anushka and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, apart from Fawad. The film is scheduled to release on October 28.
