जो तेरी ख़ातिर तड़पे पहले से ही
क्या उसे तड़पाना
 ज़ालिमा,  ज़ालिमा
जो तेरे इश्क़ में बहका पहले से ही
क्या उसे बहकाना
 ज़ालिमा,  ज़ालिमा
Why tormenting
someone who is already tormented for your sake?
Oh, cruel one! Oh, cruel one!
Why alluring someone
truly allured in your love from the start?
Oh, cruel one! Oh, cruel one!

आँखें मरहबा, बातें मरहबा
मैं सौ मर्तबा दीवाना हुआ
मेरा  रहा जब से दिल मेरा
तेरे हुस्न का निशाना हुआ
Your eyes, welcome! Your words, welcome!
I went crazy/became a lover a hundred times over.
My heart doesn't stay mine since
it became a target of your beauty

जिस की हर धड़कन तू हो
ऐसे, दिल को क्या धड़काना?
 ज़ालिमा,  ज़ालिमा
Why make the heart so palpitate
of he whose every heartbeat is yours?
Oh, cruel one! Oh, cruel one!

सांसों में तेरी नज़दीकियों का
इत्र तू घोल दे, घोल दे
मैं ही क्यूँ इश्क़ ज़ाहिर करूँ?
तू भी कभी बोल दे, बोल दे
ले के जान ही जाएगा मेरी
क़ातिल हर तेरा बहाना हुआ
Infuse the essence of your closeness
in my breath(s), infuse it!
Why should only I make my love evident?
You too say it sometime, say it!
Having taken away my life
each of your excuses will became deadly

तुझसे ही शुरू
तुझपे ही ख़त्म
मेरे प्यार का फ़साना हुआ
तू शमा है तो याद रखना
मैं भी हूँ परवाना
 ज़ालिमा,  ज़ालिमा
The story of my love has gotten
started only by you
finished only on you
If you’re a flame then remember,
that I am also a moth/dedicated lover
Oh, cruel one! Oh, cruel one!

दीदार तेरा मिलने के बाद ही
छूटे मेरी अंगड़ाई
तू ही बता दे क्यूँ ज़ालिमा मैं कहलाई
Only after obtaining a glimpse of you
you shall dismiss my tiredness,
You just explain to me, why I was called cruel
Zaalima" (Hindi: ज़ालिम, Urdu: ظالِم) "Cruel" is a song from the 2017 Indian action drama film "Raees".

In Hindustani language, "zālimā" or "zālimah" is the Arabized female form of "zālim" a noun or adjective meaning "cruel, oppressor, tyrant", in this case used to refer to a loved one with a firm grip on one's feelings.

The video clip describes the main character, Raees (the Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan), courting and celebrating his wife Aasiya (the Pakistani actress Mahira Khan).

The singers are mostly Arijit Singh for the male parts, with a small section by Harshdeep Kaur for the female parts at the end.

The lyrics were written by the Indian playback singer and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, and the music was collectively composed by JAM8, a music company founded by the Indian composer and director Pritam (Chakraborty).
