Vishal & Shekhar dedicate a special song to all the mothers out there
Mothers are special, there is no one who can replace the love that she has for her child and Indian cinema has in many ways given an ode to them -be it with the film’s narrative, its songs or its dialogues. One of the most celebrated composer duos of the Indian music industry, Vishal & Shekhar, are bringing viewers something new, while sincerely dedicating their creation or in this case – recreation, to all the mothers out there.
Times of Music is a show that brings together 20 legendary composers who will rewrite history and reinvent each other’s most celebrated tunes. Its 4th episode will see Bappi Da rearrange Vishal & Shekhar’s Jag Ghoomeya while they will be presenting his cult song ‘Yaad Aa Raha Hai’ – which they decided to dedicate to all the mothers in the world.
Elaborating on the same, Shekhar said, “Through Times of Music and Bappi’sDa’s ‘Yaad Aa Raha Hai’, we’d like to dedicate this version of the song to our mothers, and to all the mothers out there. Hug your mother every day, tell them that you love them and try to give them everything they like and want. We don’t get these chances every so often, so use every minute you have with them to make the most of it”.
Vishal further added saying, “This is a song that’s been known and loved by generations. When we started to think about our interpretation, we realised it was more than just a dance song. It was an ode to the singers mother. So we approached it from the emotional angle, instead of the dance angle and made it a dedication to both of our Mothers, because we both believe there is no higher power. We even say so, in the song.”
