New Delhi: The biggest singing sensation of Bollywood, Arijit Singh had a loving message for Imtiaz Ali the moment he heard ‘Aahista’, the new song which released on Thursday is part of the upcoming love story, Laila Majnu.
A love story without the voice of Arijit Singh is practically unthinkable. Imtiaz Ali who penned the script for Laila Majnu wanted to get Arijit on board to portray the pain and angst of the love between Laila and Majnu in this song.
When the makers sent the rough version of the song to Arijit, he loved the song instantly and sent a message to Imtiaz saying how he connected with the song in the first go. He also mentioned how beautiful the lyrics are and that he is extremely happy to lend his voice to it!
