He and Kriti dance around in green fields.
Kriti Sanon and Akshay Kumar showcase their strong chemistry in Bachchhan Paandey’s first romantic song ‘Meri Jaan Meri Jaan’.
The music video, which was released on March 1, 2022, features the duo exchanging glances and romantically embracing one another.
Akshay shared the song on his Instagram account and wrote: “On whose call Bachchhan goes, for whom Bachchhan is willing to die.”
The song is in contrast to the film’s first song ‘Maar Khayegaa’, which showed Akshay in a scary avatar that was much appreciated by fans.
The song opens with Akshay and Kriti in a tender embrace.
The romantic song shows the soft side of Akshay’s character Bachchhan Paandey, as he and Kriti dance around in green fields, monuments, and the middle of a lake.
As the scene then shifts to the middle of the lake, we see Akshay and Kriti lovingly gaze at each other standing in a boat, before we get glimpses of the couple in front of a heritage structure.
As the song ends, the viewers are given a short glimpse of a scene from the film where Akshay is seen appearing to strike Kriti with a hammer.
We hear Kriti’s scream but the screen cuts to black before we see what happens.
The song has been sung and composed by B Praak with the lyrics written by Jaani.
The film also stars Arshad Warsi, Pankaj Tripathi, Sanjay Mishra, Abhimanyu Singh and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Bachchhan Paandey is reportedly a remake of the 2014 Tamil film Jigarthanda, which was inspired by the 2006 Korean film A Dirty Carnival.
It follows a filmmaker, played by Kriti, trying to snoop on a gangster to research for her gangster film.
Bachchhan Paandey is helmed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
The film has seen multiple delays in release due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
It was earlier scheduled to release on December 25, 2020, but was pushed back to January 22, 2021, and finally to 2022.
It will get now a Holi release on March 18, 2022.
Bachchhan Paandey will mark the fourth collaboration of Akshay Kumar with Farhad Samji after Entertainment, Housefull 3 and Housefull 4.
Akshay recently wrapped up the final leg of Ram Setu.
After wrapping up the shoot for Ram Setu, Akshay said: “Here’s to the wrap of yet another amazing project #RamSetu.
“I learned so much during the making of this film, it was like going to school all over again.
“We have worked hard. Now we need your blessings.”
