"Kashmir Main Tu Kanyakumari" (English: I’m Kashmir, You’re Kanyakumari) is a Hindi song from the 2013 Bollywood film, Chennai Express. Composed by Vishal Shekhar, the song is sung by Arijit Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan and Neeti Mohan, with lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.[1][2] The music video of the track features actors Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.[3]


The song marks the first released song where Arijit Singh rendered for Shah Rukh Khan, though Singh recorded the song Manwa Laage for Happy New Year (2014) featuring Khan, prior to the recording of the song "Kashmir Main Tu Kanyakumari", however released much later.[4][5] Apart from Singh, the song also features the vocals by Neeti Mohan and Sunidhi Chauhan. Mohan collaborated with the music director duo for her debut Hindi song "Ishq Wala Love" from Student of the Year (2012) and "Dil Kaagzi" from Gippi (2013).[6]

The song was shot in Munnar which is located in the Idukki district of the southwestern Indian state of Kerala.[7] The song explores the view of mountains, hills and tea plantations in the region.[8] In the song, Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone were seen doing some basic Kathakali and Bharat Natyam moves.[9] The song is choreographed by Farah Khan.[8][10] The picturisation of the song also shows a brief scene of Puli Kali, which is the tiger folk dance of north Kerala. Its followed by a few seconds of leaping, lithe Kalaripayattu artists. The background is showcased with decorated elephants of Kerala's temple festivals.[11]


The song was released on 1 July 2013, and was available on music-streaming platforms and for digital download.[2] The music video of the song was officially released on 11 July 2013, through the YouTube channel of T-Series.[12][13]

Critical reception[edit]

The song received mixed response from critics. The composition and the lyrics of the song were criticised while the vocals by the artists of the song were appreciated.

Devesh Sharma from Filmfare praised the vocals by the lead singer particularly Arijit Singh and stated that the "nonsensical lyrics are buoyed by the verve shown by the singers".[14] Mohar Basu revieweing from koimoi found the lyrics appealing and praised the singers vocal quality in the song.[15] Joginder Tuteja from Rediff.com, found the beats of the song quite similar to "Dildara" from Tashan (2008) and felt that the "song stands out because of its simplicity".[16] Reviewers from CNN-IBN found difficult to slot the genre of the song, and felt the vocals by Neeti Mohan, Sunidhi Chauhan and Singh makes the song worth a hear with their talent.[17]

Anand Holla reviewing for Mumbai Mirror concluded that the song is "bearable if you don't mind how simplistic its lyrics are".[18] Bollywood Hungama's Rajiv Vijayakar criticise the composition of the song and stated "The lyrics are smart but a tad too phonetics-oriented and the feverish pace leaves no breathing space for any singer to shine".[19] Hindustan Times's Nirmika Singh criticise the lyrics of the song and found the song entertaining only in bits, though it is blessed with a hummable tune.[20]
