Diljit Dosanjh strikes the right chord in 'Dum Dum' reprise from Phillauri 

While the earlier version was a classic sufi track with traditional folk music, Dosanjh’s version is more contemporary.

Diljit Dosanjh's Punjabi film audience is privy to his singing talent. 'Ik Kudi' from Udta Punjab (2016) gave the Hindi film audience a taste of his singing prowess. The actor has now sung a reprise of 'Dum Dum' in his upcoming film, Phillauri. The makers had released an earlier classic sufi version of 'Dum Dum'. Doshanjh has sung a more contemporary version.

Anvita Dutt's lyrics are exemplary. Dosanjh's soulful voice and selfless submission is reflected in 'Dum Dum'. You can take out all the music and yet Dosanjh’s voice will melt your heart. 

It's interesting to note the presence of international musicians in the video — there is guitarist David Sinchury and a unknown woman playing the harp. From sitar to piano, harp to guitars, music director Shashwat Sachdev has got the perfect blend of various instruments to strike the right chord.

The song has scenes from Phillauri featuring Anushka Sharma and Dosanjh, who look like a reel pair straight out of heaven. It’s hard to take your eyes off the pairing and visuals.

Watch the 'Dum Dum' reprise below and be mesmerised by its audo and visual magic.
