Channa Mereya (transl. The light of my soul) is a song from the Indian film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The song is penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, composed by Pritam and sung by Arijit Singh. It was released on 29 September 2016 by Sony Music India. The lyrics with Sufi touch brings out the emotions from a heart broken soul and then tries to heal the wounded soul with the extended poetic verse – "Sachi mohabbat shayad wahi hai, jisme junoon hai, par do dilon ki yaari mein bhi toh kitna sukoon hai" which means "True love is that which is fuelled by madness, but no less is the friendship of two hearts in which resides peace" and also with the couplet – "Ek tarfa pyaar ki taqat hi kuch aur hoti hai. Auron ki rishton ki tarah ye do logo mei nahi battata, sirf mera haq hai ispe" which talks about unrequited love and its impact. Karan Johar, director of the film, approved "Channa Mereya" the moment he heard the song, stated Bhattacharya in an interview with SpotboyE. Ranbir Kapoor, on whose portrayed character the song is based, revealed that "Channa Mereya" is by far the best song in his entire career.
