We sent him the rough track and he loved it. And that moment he was on. Anupji is very sweet and humble to work with. He really grasps the nuances very fast. Watching him record was like being in a university. He only heard the track twice, made some notes on the lyric sheet and he was ready to record it,” said Deepak Jeswal, adding that Anup Jalota was very pleased with the lyrics of the song and Deepak Jeswal will always cherish the praises.

“It was always meant to be a gift to my father. His birthday is on January 10th. So, when we were working on the project I had envisaged it as a gift to him. It’s just so unfortunate and heartbreaking that he left us midway. And, now I am releasing the gift as a tribute. I hope Papa likes it and blesses us from wherever he is,” Jeswal said
