The popularity of its music scaled new heights as Mukesh Chhabra's directorial Dil Bechara streamed on Disney Hotstar and opened to the most impressive viewership we've witnessed in the Indian OTT space.

Amid the downpour of love for the music of the film, Sony Music India released a song from its album titled 'Maskhari' sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Hriday Gattani on public demand.

A lighthearted song about friendship, Maskhari suggests that having fun and joking around is the best way to cope with the problems of life. Ahead of the film's streaming, its music has received a fresh round of appreciation and this fun melody is being released on account of the listeners' ardent request.

Sanujeet Bhujabal, Senior Director - Marketing, Sony Music India, says, "The experience of presenting the music album to listeners has been nothing short of inspiring. It is incredible to have the viewers and the fans of the movie and AR Rahman's music, urge us to release its songs. We (at Sony Music India) are happy to heed to viewers' request and release Maskhari." 

Talking about the release of the song, Sunidhi said, "Maskhari is a fun song with so many beautifully interesting parts in it. After all it’s AR Rahman sir and it's always special for me to sing for him. Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned it incredibly and added so much more to the uplifting vibe of the song. ‘Peedahaari balm maskhari’ is my favourite line. I'm super excited that it's out now.”

Singer Hriday said, "The experience of co-singing this song with Sunidhi was awesome. The song has the thrill of a rollercoaster and Amitabh Bhattacharya's choice of words is very interesting in it. I'm glad that it's out now and I await the listeners' reaction. I am super excited."

A Hindi adaptation of John Green's The Fault In Our Stars, Dil Bechara is a story of Kizie and Manny, two ordinary people who fall in love as a tragic turn of events close in on them.

Released by Sony Music India and composed by AR Rahman, the music album of the upcoming film is available to listeners on all streaming platforms.
