Especially a romantic number, which will also be picturised on him. And, with Ishq Di Baajiyaan that wish of his fans has finally come through.
The makers of Soorma released the first track from the movie and it’s a romantic number that shows the brewing love story between Diljit and Taapsee Pannu’s character in the movie. As well as, a love-hate-fight story between Diljit and his coach. Ishq Di Baajiyaan is picturised on different hardships his character faces at the start of his hockey learning journey.
There are various cute moments in the song between Diljit and Tapsee, and equally disheartening moments from Diljit’s transformational journey. But it ends on a happy note with a beautiful chorus.
