Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's ''love song'' Kesariya has taken over everyone's playlists despite being mocked for its phrase ''love storiyan'' spoiling the track.

The song wes recently in hot waters when called out for copying Pakistani band Call's Love Chootee, but while that's contested, Bhatt came to defend her song by claiming that Kesariya has dethroned the global favorite Coke Studio song Pasoori.

Promoting their upcoming film Darlings, actors Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma, director Jasmeet K Reen along with Bhatt appeared on a panel interview with Miss Malini, an Indian digital influencer, to talk about their upcoming release.

During the conversation, Bhatt was directed with a question that asked how she feels after the massive critique Kesariya, which she calls her and husband Ranbir Kapoor's love song, has gotten for including the phrase ''love storiyan''.

Defending the lyrics, Bhatt shared she believes it's ''great'' however the song got attention from people, ''I don't think people are having issues with the song. I think it's great. I think it's lovely that there is so much given to even two words in a song. I think there was so much anticipation with the song that the ones who weren't liking those two words just wanted the song to to be so perfect.''

She further added that in a conversation with Ayan Mukerji, the director of Brahmastra, she asked if he could believe that the song itself has mamassed more views than their trailer.

''Like we dethroned, which I want to say very proudly, Pasoori which is one of my favorite songs but it's been number one for 85 days and Kesariya went straight to number one.

I proudly want to scream on the rooftop and say this because any kind of attention to a creative unit, good, bad, is attention at the end of the day and it adds on people knowing more about the film.''

On the work front, the mommy-to-be is gearing up for the release of two films this year - Darlings and Brahmastra. The former, releases in August on OTT, will be Bhatt's maiden production with Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan's production label Red Chillies Entertainment.

She will also be seen in Jee Lee Zaraa, Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and her Hollywood debut in Heart of Stone alongside Gal Gadot and Jamie  Dornan.
