Another day, another update from Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra. This time, the spotlight is on the soulful song Kesariya. But did you know that the makers had earlier created a "dancier, groovier" version of the track? This version "wasn't right for the film," so they made a romantic version. Director Ayan Mukerji has revealed it on Instagram. He had shared that the Kesariya Dance Mix and wrote, "So…before Kesariya became the song we all know and love today, it was… This." The track features Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor dancing their hearts out on the ghats of Ganga in Banaras. Ayan, in the caption, also added that the song with upbeat music was dropped as the movie Brahmastra "needed a more romantic" track. "A dancier, groovier version of the song! As you can now see, we even shot it. Then I realised that the film needed a more romantic version of the song, and the correct version of Kesariya was created. I pleaded and convinced everyone to reshoot it… and I thought we would never show anyone this earlier version of Kesariya," wrote the filmmaker.
