Mumbai based turnkey Musician Charan launches his latest track ‘Akela’, diving deep and resurfacing hidden emotions. Written and composed by the artist himself, the new track resonates the feeling of loneliness, even when surrounded by a crowd.
Striking all the right emotional chords, the music video brings the essence of the music to life, featuring renowned faces including Actor Rohit Roy, Comedian Munawar Faruqui, Model Benafsha Soonawala, among many others.
In a world where social media and smartphones have digitally united but physically distanced the world, the new single hits all the right notes that relates hard with the emotional turmoil faced by many. Prior to the launch of the music video, the teaser saw exciting reactions and immense anticipation from celebrities including Aparshakti khurana and many more.
Speaking about the track, Charan said, “Akela is not just a song, it’s an emotion and even more so in the current times. The inspiration for the song has come from personal experiences and just like me I’m sure there are many people who have either gone through this feeling or have witnessed someone close to them go through it. The feeling of being alone even in crowd raises a lot of “What ifs” and Akela is exactly about that. I hope that the listeners will be able to relate to it and will enjoy the song.”
