Diplo – ‘Phurr’

Despite Shahrukh’s role in the video, ‘Phurr’ is actually about Anushka Sharma’s character in the film.

Speaking at the launch of ‘Hawayein’, Shahrukh says:

“It’s basically a song about Anushka’s character flying free, coming of age, and realising that there is more to life than she has experienced.”

The title of the hugely anticipated track, ‘Phurr’, even symbolises the sound of flight.

Thomas Wesley Pentz, more commonly known as Diplo, is an award-winning International musician, DJ, and producer.
