Shahid says he almost went back to his roots when director Kunal Kohli shot the song. ''Allah Jaane' is my most favourite song since it's a sufi qawalli. And it's also the most romantic song in the album. Rahat Fateh Ali has sung it beautifully.'
Adds Shahid, 'I was very excited since a portion of the song has been shot in a dargah and when you see a sufi singer at a dargah singing with full emotions it takes you to another high. I got to this portion when my character Javed sits in the Dargah doing that,' says Shahid.
It did not end with that. Shahid later showed the portion of the song to his mother. 'My mother belongs to a Muslim family and when she saw the song she was very excited. She instantly said 'you are finally going back to your roots'. It was a great feeling. The song is a melody and has been shot on different locations. It's going to be one of the most iconic songs I can say,' said the actor.
