‘Locha-E-Ulfat’ is the second single to have been released for
the latest Dharma offering ‘2 States’ – the highly expected movie adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s best-selling novel (personal favorite). The movie produced by Karan Johar starts Alia Bhatt & Arjun Kapoor and with the trailer already making waves, the first single has been released. Composed by the highly versatile Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy after a string of highly acclaimed soundtracks like ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ’Vishwaroopam’, ’Chittagong’ & ‘D-Day’, this album looks all set to join the list.
