Farhan Akhtar was present for the recording too.
Shankar Mahadavan confirms the news. “We had recorded temporary track at the beginning of the shoot last year. We wanted someone who would be high on emotional quotient. Siddharth had done the temporary track that’s usually the case; someone in the studio sings the temporary track. We lived with the song for almost a year and finally thought Siddharth was perfect for the song. Rakyesh and Prasoon both thought that Siddharth was perfect.”
