Why not Gulabi, Neela or Laal, why “Gerua” used in a Bollywood song?The song from the recent movie Dilwale, "Dhup se nikal ke…rang tu mohe Gerua" become a hit song. Indeed the singer Arijit and Antara sung so well. However, what attracts me in this song is the word "Gerua". Since then I am puzzling that what make the song writer to use such word. Why not he used Gulabi (pink), Neela (blue) or Laal (Red)? Obviously, he used the word to match the song's lyric but then he could have used other similar words too.
So, I searched in the internet and found the reason. The Gerua color is used by saint or the person who want to leave everything for what they actually looking for. Here, both are looking for the love, leaving everything behind them. Thus, the word "Gerua" has meaning to this particular song.
What you say about it. According to you what match the word "Gerua" in this particular song?
