Full of energy and party beats, Koka is the first video song of Khandaani Shafakhana, released this weekend, and already seems to be climbing the music charts. The film stars Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Sharma and rapper Badshah, and the song shows Sonakshi, ready in a yellow, embroidered patiala suit and heavy jewellery, dancing to the catchy beats as if there is no tomorrow. Varun and Badshah are in seen in black pathani suits and bright jackets as they join this lively party. The lyrics of this new Hindi-Punjabi song have been written by Tanishk Bagchi and Mellow D while it has been sung by Jasbir Jassi, Badshah and Dhvani Bhanushali. It is a recreation of Jasbir Jassi’s song Koka Tera Koka.
Sharing the song’s poster on her Instagram handle, Sonakshi wrote, “The बाप [baap] of all party numbers! तैयार [tayar] raho to dance on the बीट्स [beats] of #Koka. Song link in BIO! Dekho dekho… #KhandaaniShafakhana”
People have reacted well to the trailer of Khandaani Shafakhana and the new song has also hit the right chords generally, with the audience and reviewers calling it a ‘chartbuster’ and ‘peppy’ song on social media.
Khandaani Shafakhana’s release was recently delayed to 2nd August, from 26th July, and the film will clash at the box office with Jabariya Jodi, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra. Directed by Shilpi Dasgupta, the story is based in Punjab and shows Sonakshi as a happy-go-lucky girl who loves her family and is ready to make sacrifices for them. On her role in this film, Sonakshi has previously said, “I am extremely happy to be part of this film which is so close to the world around us, to step into the shoes of a small-town girl, and face the hilarious, madcap challenges thrown at her. Full of flavour, fun and emotions.”
