Farah Khan talks about the song
Sharing a note about the song, Farah Khan said: “This song is particularly close to me because it was the first time I was choreographing Sushant… We were friends for a long time but never worked together. I had also promised Mukesh Chhabra that when he makes his directorial debut I would do a song for him. I wanted the song to be done as a 1 shot song because I knew Sushant would be able to do it perfectly.”
She further wrote: “We rehearsed a whole day and then finished shoot in half a day. As a reward for nailing it perfectly all Sushant wanted was food from my house which I duly got for him. I see the song and all I can see is how alive, how happy he looks in it. Yes this song is very special to me.“
