Mumbai: Popular singers Sonu Nigam and Malini Awasthi have teamed up for "Ram Ke Hriday Mein", a devotional song composed by Grammy winner Ricky Kej.

Billed as a "tribute to Lord Ram's return to Ayodhya", the song was released on YouTube days before the consecration ceremony to be held at the Ram temple on Monday.

The 3.54-minute track is the title song of author Amish Tripathi's upcoming documentary "Ram Janmabhoomi: Return of a Splendid Sun".

Kej shared the link of "Ram Ke Hriday Mein" on his official Instagram account on Saturday.

"A tribute to Lord Ram's return to Ayodhya. Sung by @sonunigamofficial @maliniawasthi composed by @rickykej. 'From Ram Janmabhoomi: Return of a Splendid Sun' documentary by @authoramish," the award-winning composer wrote.

Tripathi thanked Kej for creating the song for his documentary.

"Ram Ke Hriday Mein | A devotional song to welcome Lord Ram back to #Ayodhya & His birthplace. #SonuNigam, @rickykej, and @maliniawasthi created this magical piece for my upcoming documentary - 'Ram Janmabhoomi: Return of a Splendid Sun'," the author wrote on X.

Awasthi, a noted folk singer, thanked Tripathi for bringing the music community together for "Ram Ke Hriday Mein".

"I am so happy to be part of this beautiful song dedicated to the historic occasion of #RamMandirPranPratishta Beautifully beautifully created by brilliant @rickykej, and sung by one and only #Sonunigam thank you @authoramish for bringing us all together for this gem #RamMandir #Ayodhya," she wrote on the microblogging site.

Both Nigam and Awasthi are part of the guest list for the event.
