‘Mirzya’ song ‘Aave Re Hithki’: Harshvardhan, Saiyami find love

The latest song ‘Aave Re Hitchki’ from upcoming film ‘Mirzya’ is soft and melodious romantic number featuring lead actors Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher. The two are making their Bollywood debut with the film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

The video of the song begins with Saiyami arriving at a ranch to learn horse-riding. Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan holds out his hands for the actress to step and climb on the horse, and trains her to be a skilful rider.

Harshvardhan and Saiyami share a crackling chemistry with their silent gazes, and the song features how love blossoms between them over horse-riding sessions.

‘Aave Re Hitchki’ has a subtle pace and sounds pleasant in the vocals of Mame Khan and Shankar Mahadevan, who has composed it with his partners Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa. The lyrics have been penned by Gulzar who has also written the movie.

Harshvardhan shared the song on Twitter and wrote, "My fave one from #Mirzya...An old superstition, a new love song... aave re #Hitchki. Who are you remembering today?" ‘Hitchki’ means hiccups and it is said that ‘When you get hiccups, it means that someone is missing you'. The song does convey the message beautifully.

Gulzar is making a comeback as a screenwriter after 17 years with ‘Mirzya’, which is based on the folklore of love story of Mirza-Sahiban. The romantic drama is set to release on October 7.
