Dilbar’s unprecedented victory, shatters all records

Norah Fatehi
The peppy chartbuster is creating history that no Indian song has managed so far. The super hit song from SATYAMEVA JAYATE, picturised on Norah Fatehi, sung by Neha Kakkar and Dhvani Bhanushali is raging ahead and is unstoppable in setting new milestones.
The song which has been recreated from the 1999 film Sirf Tum is creating waves worldwide. Dilbar has garnered the fastest 20 million views on YouTube within 24 hours when it was released on July 4. Racing ahead, it soon became the song with the fastest 50 million views and now has the never-before honour of becoming the song with the fastest 100 million views. Dilbar is also the first Indian song to reach the number 3 position on Billboards YouTube Channel.
The song has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi from the 90s hit picturised on Sushmita Sen. Bhushan Kumar, who first came up with the idea of recreating Dilbar for SATYAMEVA JAYATE says, “We are ecstatic by this huge achievement that Dilbar has achieved. We would like to thank Neha, Nora, Dhvani, Tanishk, Nikhil, director Milap (Milan Zaveri), John (Abraham) and choreographer Adil (Shaikh) for making the song what is with passion and hard work. The song is a proof that recreated songs work when there is proper thought and strategy behind it.”
Dhvani, who is over the moon with her first big success says, "It’s a moment of happiness and thrill for me. An opportunity to sing for a recreated version of such an iconic song along with Tanishk sir and Neha is great. I am grateful to Bhushan Kumar sir, Nikkhil sir and Milap sir for giving me this opportunity."
Neha Kakkar adds, “To be honest, when I sang the song Dilbar I didn’t have much expectations although, I loved the experience of recording the song with one of my favourite composers Tanishk. After the song came out I realised what a vision Mr. Bhushan Kumar has. He’s the one who decided to revisit Dilbar and it has broken all records. Really happy to have another blockbuster in my kitty with T-Series and many more to come!”
