A heritage castle, a grand ballroom, a black-and-white screen, a gown-glad dame, a tuxedo-clad gentleman and soft music. Easily the setting of a Victorian novel, this is the backdrop of the song, ‘Nazdeekiyaan’, a love ballad from the romantic comedy, Shaandaar, depicted in vintage style. Featuring a svelte Shahid Kapoor and graceful Alia Bhatt, the video is shot in black and white, with an air of old world charm about it.
The song perfectly captures the onscreen ‘Shaalia’ (as they are now referenced on social media) dynamic. The fairytale romance element aside, the highlight of the video is the lighthearted moment between father-son Shahid and Pankaj Kapur who actually dance with each other at one point.
