I have sung both Tamil and Hindi versions of the song. I think Arijit and my voices harmonize together beautifully, I really like how we sang it together. It is also splendidly composed by AR Rahman sir and written by Irshad ji. The thing is, when you are recording a song for Rahman sir, he puts you in that song in his mind and then he calls you for it.
“There was an instant connection when I was singing this song, even when I was first performing it. I recorded the first version in Canada during the lockdown and I think it was love at first voice for me. I was praying that the song should be released in my voice. I am deeply thankful to Rahman sir and Aanand L Rai sir for giving me a collective call to cast me in the track. There is so much love, so much vulnerability and so much naivety to my lines in the song and I think it represents me in many ways,” said Shasha.

My singing by trying to learn from what he does in his songs. To be featured on a track like this with him is really unreal to be in that place again I would love to do a single with Arijit, I would really like to write a song for Arijit. I am his next level fan and student.”
