The movie ‘Lucknow Central’ starring starring Farhan Akhtar in the lead role has released its first song titled ‘Kawa Kawa’. The song is an out-and-out peppy number which is composed by Arjuna Harjaie with lyrics by Kumaar and vocals by Divya Kumar.
The producer of the Nikkhil Advani said that they wanted an anthem song for the movie. “After a long debate on whether we should create and original song or pick up an existing chartbuster, we all together, me, Farhan and Ajit Andhare (COO, Viacom18) zeroed on ‘Kawa Kawa’. The reason being that it is one number that after so many years still plays at wedding sangeet parties and people like to listen to it,” shared Nikkhil.
