The first song Chadhta Sooraj from Neil Nitin Mukesh’s upcoming film Indu Sarkar is out. The famous qawwali sung by Aziz Nazan has been recreated for the film by his son Mujtaba. The song features the musicians on a stage inside a massive hall (probably a restaurant) while Neil Nitin Mukesh, who plays Sanjay Gandhi is seen sitting among the audience. Indu Sarkar, directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, is set against Emergency period. Before unveiling the song, Mr Bhandarkar and Kirti interacted with fans on Twitter. Of the song Chadhta Sooraj, the filmmaker said, “It’s been long that Hindi cinema had any qawwali song. People do remake or recreate, I wanted to recreate a philosophical song which was very popular in 70’s.”
