A new song – Ishq Namazaa – from Abhishek Bachchan’s upcoming drama The Big Bull has landed online. Watch how Abhishek and Nikita Dutta indulge in some old-school romance.
As the song opens, we see Abhishek deep into his work as Nikita tries to seduce him. In no time, the scene moves to olden times, when they romance first blossomed. Glances over a carrom board game, romance at ruins, garba at their Mumbai chawl, touristy pictures at honeymoon in Delhi’s Qutub Minar add character to the period drama.
