Also present on the occasion were South actress Priyamani, Nikitin Dheer, Shekhar Ravjiani of the Vishal-Shekar duo, Singer Neeti Mohan, lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, producer Ronnie Screwala, T-series head Bhushan Kumar and others.
"It is memorable moment to release the music, it is a beautiful music. It is nice to have SP Balasubramaniam (noted singer) on board, we are huge fans of him. He is 67, but sounds like a 20-year-old. We had one of the best experiences ever to work with a legend," Shekhar said.
