“It’s been the smoothest and most comfortable experience, feels like family, working on a song with my big brother/ best buddy. We have performed together in Dubai once last year, and we connected instantly! We knew we wanted to work on a song together, and we finally found time to reconnect when he was back in Mumbai for IPL. Once I made him hear the Chamiya song, he was hooked, and I realized right then that I had to write a part for him in the song to make this happen and the rest was history!” [7]
