In this film, Kiara Advani and Aditya Seal refurbish iconic retro looks to pay tribute to Bollywood with the song Dil Tera.
Describing how the song, Dil Tera, was conceptualized, the director says, “As a filmmaker, I am passionate about the many classics that have shaped the Hindi film industry. While writing the song sequence, I wanted to pay homage to the iconic looks and sequences from the ’60s to the ’90s.”

For this song, the director collaborated with the film’s stylist Sheetal Sharma to remain faithful to the eras.
The stylist, Sheetal Sharma shares, “It is a situational song that imaginatively spans the glorious eras of Hindi cinema. References were drawn from the most iconic look of every decade. We also added a bit of quirk to each theme.”
