Soon after the release of the trailer of Imtiaz Ali's Laila Majnu, the film's first song 'Aahista' was released on Thursday, depicting the blossoming love between the two lead actors of the film, newcomers Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri.

The producers of the film, Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures shared the song with a message, saying, "Let our heartbreak anthem mend your broken heart! Presenting Aahista from Laila Majnu."

Aahista has been sung by Arijit Singh and Jonita Gandhi, however, unlike their previous song together, the 'Breakup Song' from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Aahista is a soulful love song, with music given by Niladri Kumar and lyrics Irshad Kamil.

The depiction of the song is on the lead couple Avinash and Tripti and shows how their characters become close to one another and how love develops between them. Only a slight glimpse is given of the violent opposition that comes to their love.

While the film has been written by Imtiaz Ali as a re-working of the original age-old love story of Laila Majnu, the director of the film is Sajid Ali. The movie is set in the backdrop of Kashmir, in a modern context and is scheduled to release on September 7.
