Zoya Akhtar’s calling card in Bollywood is the larger-than-life films she mounts every time: after the mega success of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Luck By Chance, her latest, Dil Dhadakne Do, is making all the right noise just before its release date. With a star-cast to die for, which includes the likes of Anil Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh, Shefali Shah and Anushka Sharma, the film’s new song, released on Thursday, is already proving to be a chartbuster.

The song presents the star qualities of the ensemble cast in all its grandeur: It is filmed on a cruise. Called Gallan Goodiyaan, this ‘party’ song is sung by Yashita Sharma, Manish Kumar Tipu, Farhan Akhtar, Shankar Mahadevan and Sukhwinder Singh.

Written by Javed Akhtar, it’s a blend of trend and tradition. Soft in outlook, the song is high on energy.

Dil Dhadakne Do is set to hit the screens on June 5, 2015.
