The release of Romeo Akbar Walter is right around the corner, and the makers of the film have now launched yet another song from its soundtrack. Titled Allah Hoo Allah, this song is a devotional qawwali with music to match the genre. This song’s music video features John Abraham and Mouni Roy. It was released via the Times Music YouTube channel on March 29, and has managed to garner more than 6 million views till now.

Allah Hoo Allah starts off with a reverential poem that goes, “Mange sada, tere hi dar se dua. Mange sada tere hi dar se dua. Tu jo sune na mera ye dard, toh kisko sunaunga main. Khaali utha tere dar se jo main, toh phir kiske dar pe jaunga main.” The song then changes gears and shifts into a melodious rendition of its lyrics.

Shabbir Ahmed, who has been active in the industry since a very long time, has both written and composed this track. It has been sung by Sameer Khan, with additional vocals being provided by Maneesh Singh, Shreyas Puranik, Jay Mehta, Mayur Sakhare and Tejas Mahure.
