Titled “Mawaali Dil”, the original track featured a couple of lines by her and a cameo of her in the music video.
The singer has been doing a lot of independent music of late, and has been collaborating with musicians to support non-film music. While the track is written and composed by Shashwat, Nikhita felt a strong connect to the song and decided to do her own interpretation of it.
A source says, “Nikhita has done a cover of the song because she personally enders non-film music and she loved the original track. She’s happy that she did this track around Valentine’s Day. It was shot just a day before release. The shooting happened at Marbella’s, an adorable little cafe in Kolkata.”
Sharing the experience of working on the song, Nikhita says, “Mawaali Dil” is a song I worked very closely on with Shashwat, as I was part of the song right from the inception of the melody. This is my tribute to the original track. The song was always special to me and making this reprise is truly an ode to this beautiful piece.”
