Kartik Aaryan expresses his love for Pritam’s music and says, “He is a best in the business and he is someone whose music has always been my personal favourite and the favourite song from the film would be Mehrama. The early Love Aajkal was the one which had great music, the whole album was such a huge success and he did it again with this Love Aajkal and couldn’t have asked for better songs….I think the song from our love story, from our Love Aajkal, I think they play an important role in our movie and Pritam Da has done it again.”
Sara Ali Khan further adds, “The lyrics, music, vibe, feeling of the song has the power to take you back down memory lane immediately. I think that’s the power of the song. Lot of our songs have been composed after we have shot them. I almost feel like, especially with Mehrama that we shot on the song and that’s why it’s my favourite song.”
