“Mujhe to tum maar chuke ho, Magar main tumhe kahin amar kar aaya hoon. Aur main bolu ya nahin, Magar ye shabd jo aksh hai Mere sheeshe jaise chehre par chamakte huye, Bas kuch kehte rahenge.” - Spitfire Created by the IncInk Art Studio.

Paathshala marks the debut of Spitfire real name Nitin Mishra, who is seen singing and acting in the video.
The song is his own life-story and how he found the strength to break through stereotypes and discover his real identity. Mishra sings about education and learning and about setting himself free.
"This song got my attention because it is actually about how the birth of Spitfire, the performer, saved Nitin Mishra. Our society has stratified rigid methods of education, learning and considers these the ultimate benchmark of a person's abilities. We disagree," Ranveer said in a statement.
Eranee added, "Being yourself is considered an act of revolution in today's culture. Art and expression free us from the conditions of our lives."
Ranveer Singh is currently in London, shooting for Kabir Khan's directorial biopic film 83 alongside her real and reel life partner Deepika Padukone, slated to release on April 10, 2020
