Habit, sung by Shreya Ghosal and Arko, was supposed to release on 21st October. But music label Saregama decided to release it a day earlier than the expected date and pleasantly surprised all Sidnaaz fans. The video features the beloved television couple Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill.
The shooting had taken place in Goa earlier this year but Shukla’s tragic death left it unfinished. However, due to the demand of fans, the renowned music label decided to release the incomplete footage itself as a tribute to the television heartthrob and king of reality TV. When they shared the video, Saregama wrote: “Thousands of #SidNaaz fans wanted the song immediately. Who are we to come in the way?”
The footage, that has finally been released, includes the parts that had already been shot, along with clips of Shehnaaz singing the track and behind the scene shots of when the shooting was taking place. Those footages show Sidharth and Shehnaaz in a playful mood enjoying each other’s company along with the rest of the cast and crew. Habit itself is a love song which talks about the highs and lows of a romantic relation. But, complete with the footages and Shehnaaz’s singing, the video has gone up a notch higher and touched the heartstrings of all fans. Habit is totally a service to all the fans who are emotionally invested in the story of Sidnaaz.
Habit is being touted as “Ek Adhura Gaana, Ek Adhuri Kahani. A Sidnaaz song (an incomplete song, an incomplete story)”.
Earlier, Shreya Ghosal had shared the poster of Habit with the caption: “He was a star and will be forever.. The love of millions of hearts will shine bright forever. #Habit our unfinished song.. #Adhura hai par phir bhi poora rahega.. #Sidnaaz ka yeh aakhri gaana, har fan ki khwahish, hamesha ke liye humare dilon mein zinda rahega.”
