Makers of "Happy New Year" released its first song "Indiawaale" on Tuesday and it's already topping the charts.
Composed by Vishal-Shekhar and sung by Vishal Dadlani, KK, Shankar Mahadevan and Neeti Mohan, the number has an interesting patriotic vibe to it. Shot at a grand scale, director Farah Khan has for sure created one of the most visually stunning videos of the year.
With bright colour, confetti, and celebration, the mood of "Indiawaale" is upbeat and happy. Dressed in velvet dinner jackets, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah groove to the foot-tapping number, while Deepika Padukone flaunts her moves in a turquouise-gold lehenga.

The set appears expensive and rich and gives off a feeling of Deja Vu. Farah's films with Shah Rukh ("Main Hoon Na" and "Om Shanti Om") has always had that one loud and grand song. "Gori Gori" and "Deewangi Deewangi" are two numbers, which are remembered for its exquisite set design and star content.
The "HNY" team took to Twitter to share "Indiawaale" song with fans and friends from the industry. While Shah Rukh even gave a philosophical touch to his tweet and wrote "The first song will see the light of the world today from HNY, "Indiawaale." Hope it entertains you all. Life is the dancer & u r the dance...," director Farah kept it simple and posted, "Dilon ke Taale Todne...Aa Gaye Hai."
"Presenting the Dance Anthem of @HNY- Watch #IndiaWaale song!," Irani wrote and Sood urged his fans to join him and learn the steps of the song, "Come on, join us and do the #IndiaWaale step!"
Composer Shekhar Ravijani, who called "Indiawaale" to be a dance anthem ahead of "Happy New Year" trailer launch, said it's a song for everyone. ""I am so excited for everyone to hear the full song because we feel that 'Indiawaale' is a dance anthem that can be heard and danced to in a disco, stadium or a stage. It is a song for everyone!," he told India Today.
