Here's what Arijit has to say about Ae Dil Hai Mushkil...
With the latest song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil becoming a rage, singer Arijit Singh says he crooned the number after carefully observing the mannerisms of Ranbir Kapoor in the video already shot for the track.
The title song, composed by Pritam, forms the basis of the 1.33-min teaser of the Karan Johar-directed romantic drama. It opens with the Tamasha star lip-syncing the track, penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
The Tum Hi Ho hitmaker says since Ranbir had already shot the video of the song, he had to observe his body language to sing in that particular style. "This is going to be really interesting because this was perhaps the first time where I had to sing while looking at the actor. He (Ranbir) had already performed on that song.
"So I had to call for the video, watch the reflexes and match him. That was a very good experience for me," Arijit told a news portal.
This is the first time that Arijit has lent his voice to a Karan Johar-directed film. The 29-year-old singer is all praise for the "killer song" and feels Johar has a "terrific music sense" which is reflected in all his films.
Though he has sung several chartbusters for various Bollywood stars, Arijit says he never has the habit of asking for which film he is singing and for whom. "I never ask for the film, who is acting, because I have never seen this (process). When I used to assist, we were given situations, songs used to be done and somebody used to shoot it," he said.
"So, I am habitual like that. I just never ask. All I know is I have to do proper justice to the song, then someone will perform it on shoot. So it is his responsibility."
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, also starring Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan, is scheduled to release this Diwali.
Earlier, talking about his song being ditched from Sultan the singer said "Of course, I was sad. Not because I couldn't be a part of 'Sultan', but the song is really very good. How Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has sounded in that song, there is no doubt about it," he said.
"That song will obviously make me feel sad every time I will think about it. But no issues, I'll move on. When the song was released, I was singing it throughout. It is such a nice song. It is very rare that songs like these are made," he added.
The singer, meanwhile, has crooned three songs in Emraan Hashmi starrer "Raaz Reboot" and is excited about it.
