It is a situational qawali track backed by desi rhythms for the Bollywood film Kill Dil. Nakhriley is sung by actor-singer, Ali Zafar, along with the combination of Shankar Mahadevan and Mahalakshmi Iyer.
It comes with the fusion trio string section rendition of violins, violas and cello that can be heard throughout this song. Gulzar has provided the lyrics for the Indian beats by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
In Kill Dil, Bhaiyaji (Govinda) gives shelter and nurtures two abandoned and vulnerable young men – Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) – and turns them into carefree killers.
Then fate throws in the free-spirited Disha (Parineeti Chopra). What follows in what has so far been their normal lives, is a game of defiance and deception…and love.
Directed by Shaad Ali and produced by Aditya Chopra for Yash Raj Films, KILL DIL is being promoted as an entertaining Bollywood thriller about guns and romance.
The film will release on 14th November 2014.
