New Delhi: Dum Dum, the first song from Anushka Sharma's Phillauri released on Thursday and is driving away mid-week blues in a jiffy. Anushka and Diljit Doshanjh's Dum Dumsets a sufiayana mood and transports you to the poster-like mustard fields of Punjab. Team Phillauri describes Dum Dum as the first sufi song of 2017. Anushka features as a simple Punjabi kudi named Shashi while Diljit's character is an aspiring singer, who wins hearts with his soulful compositions. Dum Dum introduces Diljit's character, who can be seen making music with inspirations from his everyday rural life. Shashi chances upon Diljit's music and gets more and more drawn towards him. They also have an awkward encounter at a gurudwara.

Soon, Shashi and Diljit's character appear together in the song but as far as we know, their love story stops short of a happy ending. The trailer of Phillauri features Anushka as a ghost bride, who later gets accidentally married to Kanan, played by Suraj Sharma. In the trailer of Phillauri, Diljit's character features in the snippets of the ghost bride's past.
Surprisingly, Diljit, a celebrated Punjabi singer, is not the one the song can be credited to. Dum Dum has been sung by Romy and Vivek Hariharan.
