Music is what I breathe, eat, sleep. There isn't a day that goes without doing my riyaz. It would be apt to say that music is my life energy. A gift from the universe, it is something I treasure the most. And I can't thank God enough for showering me with this gift. In both good and adverse times, it has been my strength. 'Jane woh kaise log the...jinke pyar ko pyar mila...' (Pyaasa) is one song which I would love to recreate.

The retro song I would have loved to sing: it would have been 'Jaane Jaan dhoondta' from Jawani Diwani - am a very big fan of Asha Tai and I just love the way the song has the different octaves and parts blended so well.

'Lag Ja Gale' is my all time favourite. I would never want to sing it though, no one can match the original. This is a song I feel like incorporating every single time I perform with my band.

Music is the expression of life for me. In society, everyone has a role. An artist's role is to question things, stand for hope, make people feel beautiful in chaos. This is what I do as an artist with my music every day. I've wanted to recreate 'Aaj jaane ki Zidd na karo' and it happened with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

I love how fluid and beautifully naughty the song 'Ja Ja Bewafa' is coupled with this is Geeta Dutt's tender voice and the way she renders the song!

'Chalte Chalte Yuhi Koi' My ma sings that song and it always makes me tear up a little bit. It's one of the most beautiful ballads of its time and I've always wished that I could write a song that would be relevant decades later.
