Here’s something cool: the track has a very interesting story behind it. Based on the partition era, Bharat Bhagyo Bhidata of Rajkahini (Bengali version of Begum Jaan), garnered great acclaim. During the making of Begum Jaan, Srijit Mukerji was left to ponder about how the final track should be. Giving us the backstory, Srijit said, “We were contemplating translating the four lesser known stanzas of the poem (only the first one was declared the National Anthem).

Alia Bhatt: ‘Being a member of your own fan club won’t get you anywhere’ at India Today Conclave

22 March 2017 11:56 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

“My father once told me when I’m the most intelligent person in the room, you should find another room. Today I’m not going to have that problem,” began Alia Bhatt, winning a resounding applause from the audience at the India Today Conclave 2017 with her introductory line. She had stepped onto the stage to one of the most popular coming-of-age songs in Indian cinema: Papa Kehta Hain. The actress had made an apt choice for her entry song, considering she was here to discuss all the preaching she had received from her Papa.

When her father director Mahesh Bhatt found out that she had been asked to speak at the session, he had warned her: “Speak to me before you go, or the arena will eat you up!” The confident Alia need not have worried, for she had the crowd enthralled with her entertaining enactment of lessons from her father. »
