In T-series’ latest album, Shaan and Amaal Mallik come together for the romantic song titled 'Tum Ho Toh Lagta Hai'.
Shaan, who has completed 25 years as a playback singer in the industry is considered to be one of the most romantic voices, and the music video has young talent Amaal Mallik of Azhar and Airlift fame as the composer, with Rashmi Virag penning the beautiful lyrics. Shaan is working with the young composer for the first time under the label by Bhushan Kumar.
Talking about it, Bhushan Kumar said, "Shaan has sung the song beautifully and I am confident that the audience will love it.''
To which Shaan replied, "As soon as Amaal played out the first line, it just blew me away and I told Bhushan that I wanted to sing this. I am known for romantic songs and have composed, written and sung 'Tanha Dil', 'Gumsum Ho Kyun', 'Aksar' and 'Tishnagi', but I haven't heard a more sincere love song than this, in a long time."
Taapsee and Saqib’s chemistry is magical in the video. They are shown as childhood sweethearts, madly in love, who grow up sharing beautiful moments together, and how their life takes an unexpected turn. Versatile actress Zarina Wahab plays Taapsee's mother in the video.
Talking about the team, he said, "One-and-a-half years ago, Amaal was a newcomer. Abhi woh thoda bada ho gaya hain. Shaan, of course, is a great singer and I have known him since a long time. Virag has penned beautiful lyrics and director Aleya Sen has done a good job."
With this single, producer Bhushan Kumar is continuing his trend of encouraging non-Bollywood music after ‘Mai Yahin Hoon’ and ‘Mai Rahoon ya Na Rahoon’. He says, "This gives newcomers a platform to showcase their talent and with the kind of success singles have been getting, we feel that non-film songs are working as well as Bollywood songs."
