New Delhi: Manzoor-E-Khuda, the third song fromT hugs Of Hindostan’s playlist, released on Wednesday in the form of a teaser – just the way Suraiyya was introduced. Yash Raj Films, who dropped the teaser, described the song as one that sets the mood for action and adventure: “This Diwali, get ready for an explosion of action and adventure!” Now that we have already been introduced to Suraiyya as a popular dancer from 1795 India, she returns to set the floor on fire inManzoor-E-Khuda. But her brilliance on the dance floor isn’t the only highlight of the song.
The one-minute-long teaser is punctuated with glimpses of Amitabh Bachchan AKA Khudabaksh and his fauj of thugs fighting off the East India Company in a sea-battle of ships, swords and bombastic cannons! For a change, it also appears that Aamir Khan, who plays conman Firangi Mullah, is fighting for Khudabaksh’s army with utmost sincerity but surprisingly, Manzoor-E-Khudaalso ends with a cliff-hanging moment of sword fight between Firangi and Khudabaksh with Amitabh Bachchan narrating the motto of the Thugs Of Hindostan – “Agaar azadi hai gunah, toh qubul hai sazaa. Ab toh hoga wohi, jo hai manzoor-e-khuda!” This rings a bell? Yes, we heard Khudabaksh echoing the same when the trailer released last month. The song also has glimpses of Khudabaksh’s second in command deadly archer Zafira, played by Fatima Sana Shaikh.
