Ik Vaari Aa (Hindi: इक बारी आ, Urdu: اِک باری آ) "Come once!" is a song featured in the 2017 Bollywood film "Raabta".

The song's video clip shows the two main characters, Shiv ( Sushant Singh Rajput) and Saira (Kriti Sanon), with the background of the city of Budapest, while they say goodbye to each other, and then they keep thinking about each other.

The song also speaks about how both characters seem to be sharing some mysterious connection (the "raabta" of the film's title) even before their first encounter.

The lyrics were written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, and the music was composed by Pritam.

The playback singer was Arijit Singh.
