Actor-filmmaker-singer Farhan Akhtar has released a new single Chulein Aasman, to drive home the message that the girl child is no 'paraye ghar ki amanat'.



Made in collaboration with Salim Merchant, the song is penned by Farhan and Shraddha Pandit. Salim and Sulaiman have composed music for the piece directed by Vineet Sawant.







One interesting aspect of the video is that it features women are shown in very generic attire in it -- sarees and suits, unlike several other corporate campaigns where empowered women get into either western dresses or extremely masculine attires.
