Rahat Fateh Ali Khan really is a wonder. The legend is more often than not the saving grace of many Bollywood films that aren’t exactly the most riveting…his soul-stirring voice drips in heartache, and we all anticipate a good Rahat jee song emerging from Indian cinema. He’s given us countless gems we will forever cherish – and he’s just unearthed another one that will have you crying an ocean of tears.
Legit us whenever we hear a Rahat Fateh Ali Khan song (you know it’s true)
Rahat jee has lent his vocals for the song ‘Tu Meri Main Tera’ for upcoming Bollywood film ‘Namaste England’ and OH. MY. GOODNESS, it’s so heartbreaking
‘Tu Meri Main Tera’ narrates the separation of protagonists Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor.
The gorgeous music video shows a broken Parineeti who seems to be longing for Arjun as Rahat jee’s aching chorus prevails overhead
Arjun too hallucinates Parineeti, and a tender moment pops up where he sees her in his arms – it fits so wonderfully with the heaviness of the lyrics; the heart always asks where you are, no matter where it is
There is an incredible sense of pain in Rahat’s voice, and that’s why he really is the reigning king of heartbreak ballads
‘Dooriyan’ is a thematic element in the song, as Rahat sings his heart out about how you are mine, and I am yours
Indians took to the YouTube video to laud Rahat jee and his magnificent voice
As did many Pakistanis
