I don’t think anyone else could’ve sung that song better than her. Pooja ji, your performance in the song was incredible. I only understood what you wanted to convey as an adult. So so beautiful! (sic.)"

"I was prob 20 when I watched zakhm for the first time, quite randomly.And it had such a huge impact that I researched extensively about it. And obviously came to know about bhatt sahab's parents and their love story. It made me cry and smile at the same time. If you're reading this pooja mam, please tell your father that he and his strength and his work have had a very huge impact on someone very far away. A huge fan of a huge man (sic.)" read another comment.
