Translation of Rehna Tu Song:

Stay just the way you are
You are a bit of a pain and also a bit of tranquility
Stay just the way you are
Like a gentle breeze or a bit of madness
My darling, you are a little bit soft like silk
and also a little bit rough
Sometimes running away
Sometimes fighting
Or sometimes filled with fragrance

I do not want to change you 
not even a little bit
Without any decorations
Without any adulteration
Not any more or not any less
I love you just the way you are

I want to get soaked in your rain 
and get completely dissolved
I love you just the way you are
I want to burn in your flames 
and turn into ash

If you inflict a wound then
you are the one to come and 
apply ointment to heal the wound
So I even love the wound
Let me drown in the sea (of love)

If we want to walk holding hands
How can both hands be right hands 
One has to be a right hand and 
One has to be a left hand
Hold my hand and walk with me 

Stay just the way you are
You are a bit of a pain and a bit of tranquility

Setting of Rehna Tu Song from Delhi-6 

Roshan (Abhishek Bachchan), an Indian American, accompanies his grandmother (Waheeda Rehman) from the United States to India because the grandmother wants to spend her last remaining days in her ancestral home in old Delhi. Roshan has never lived in India and wants to discover his roots. He spends his time taking care of his grandmother and getting to know the country and culture where his parents came from. He also gets to know many people in the neighborhood. Roshan becomes particularly interested in one neighbor called Bittu (Sonam Kapoor), who is trying to break the traditional rules and find a new way of life for herself. Roshan and Bittu get to know each other, and Roshan tries to help Bittu with some of her struggles against her family's conservative rules. They fall in love but do not express their feelings in words until much later. In this song, it is easy to see their emotions because they say so much with their eyes and facial expressions without any words. In the song, some of the video clips come from real events, for example, Roshan and Bittu's trip to the Taj Mahal with other family members and friends, whereas other parts are pure imagination and fantasy. 

About Delhi-6 movie  

The title of the movie, Delhi-6, comes from the last number of the postal code 110006 for a neighborhood in an old part of Delhi. Here the streets are old, narrow and crowded. Houses are also old, and most people follow traditional rules. The movie centers around Roshan, an Indian American, who has grown up in America and does not know much about life in India. Roshan learns about many interesting aspects of Indian culture, people and music. He also discovers some of the negative sides of this society. Without fully realizing the implications, he unwittingly becomes involved in the communal conflicts that are occurring in the neighborhood and pays a heavy price. The depiction of places, people and old Delhi neighborhoods has been done well in the film and seems genuine. Film makers have clearly paid attention to details to make things and people look more real.
