Amongst number of chartbuster tracks that BACHNA AE HASEENO boasts of, 'Ahista Ahista' - a romantic number picturised on Ranbir Kapoor and Minissha Lamba - holds a special place in the hearts of film's composer duo of Vishal and Shekhar. Reason? The number is rendered by Lucky Ali with whom Vishal-Shekhar were looking forward to working with for number of years.
"Call it destiny but somehow we were never able to work with Lucky Ali for all these years", says Vishal who is currently touring along with Shekhar in Bachchans' 'Unforgettable', "We were bowled over by his work in SUR and ever since then were looking forward to creating something special with him."
This is where Siddharth Anand became catalyst as he proposed Lucky Ali's name for a romantic number in BACHNA AE HASEENO.
"We grabbed it with both hands the moment we realized that Siddharth wanted Lucky on board. He has a great voice and the genre which 'Ahista Ahista' belongs to, Lucky Ali was just the right fit", recollects Vishal who along with Shekhar worked extra hard to ensure that their first time association with Lucky Ali delivered special results.
"We had to deliver nothing but the best with 'Ahista Ahista'. Shreya Ghoshal, Lucky's partner in the duet, too knew that this could be one big song for everyone involved. Thankfully everything fitted in perfectly well and what we got in the end was a romantic song which excited us all. Siddharth Anand further took it to the next level by selecting beautiful locales and coming up with an eye candy picturisation", concludes Vishal.
