Single Rehne De (Hindi:सिंगल रहने दे, Urdu: سِن٘گََل رہنے دے) "Let Me Stay Single" is a song from the 2017 Bollywood film Simram.

The lyrics narrate the story of a young girl who resists the pressure of her family (especially from her father) to get married.
They were written by Vayu, and they contain several words and phrases that give the song a Gujarati ambiance:
  • the objective pronouns mane and tamne (to me and to you, respectively)
  • the reference to dhoklas, a typical Gujarati dish (in the song, this word is even pronounced with the proper Gujarati spelling)
  • the phrase "eat, drink, enjoy life", usually attributed to the Parsi/Zoroastrian community from Gujarat

The music was composed by the duo Sachin-Jigar

The video clip shows the movie protagonist, Praful Patel (played by Kangana Ranaut) dancing in a sexy maid apron.
In the movie, Praful also is pressured by her father to get married as a way to solve her problems.

The playback singers are Divya Khosla Kumar and Shalmali Kholgade.
