Shot by cinematographer Aseem Mishra, the song sees Priyanka Chopra as Nandita and Ranveer Singh as Bikram canoodling at an exotic locale that includes a ruined muddy structure and a rocky landscape shorn of any greenery. The two have a number of costume changes in the song.
'Jiya' is composed by Sohail Sen and written by Irshad Kamil.
The lyrics goes, “Likhoon hawaon pe main, naino se naam tera, Ho..saaye se main haathon ke, saaya loon thaam tera. Ishq ka tu hai rab, jiske chaaron taraf, meri baahon ke ghere ka, bane hashiyaan…Jiya…main na jiya.”
It’s a lilting track and much different from the previous 'Gunday' songs like 'Tune Maari Entriyaan' (watch it, 'Jashn-e-Ishqa' (watch it).
Gunday has Priyanka Chopra playing a cabaret dancer and Ranveer Singh a coal bandit. The film also stars Arjun Kapoor.
Interestingly, both Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor are smitten with Priyanka Chopra in the film. But whose feelings she reciprocates remains to be seen. Going by ‘Jiya’, looks like Ranveer Singh is the one who walks away with her love.
