Prabhas and Kriti Sanon are the lead actors in the cinematic retelling of the Indian epic Ramayana titled Adipurush, which has been making headlines since the release of the first look several months ago. Now, the makers of the film have released the second song from the album – Ram Siya Ram. The song offers an insight into Raghav and Janaki's exile in the forest, where they are shown to spend several lovely moments, reveling in the wonders of nature. However, as the story goes the two are separated and the song also shows the couple pining for each other. While Janaki is seen shedding tears thinking of Raghav, Raghav prepares for war to rescue his wife. The song also shows Hanuman serving as the messenger between the couple.
The song, composed by Sachet Tandon and Parampara Tandon, has also been sung by the duo. The lyrics are by Manoj Muntashir Shukla. Ram Siya Ram has been released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
