Sidharth, the 19-year old loved the lyrics of the song and agreed with the ethos of the song. The song infuses energy and directs one towards living life to the fullest.
'Zinda' has been envisaged more like a youth anthem. It shows the zeal of moving ahead and doing something. More in spirit of Milkha Singh, the national hero himself.
The final song was shot two weeks back in Mumbai. Farhan Akhtar was present for the recording too.
Shankar Mahadavan confirms the news. ''We had recorded temporary track at the beginning of the shoot last year. We wanted someone who would be high on emotional quotient. Siddharth had done the temporary track that's usually the case; someone in the studio sings the temporary track. We lived with the song for almost a year and finally thought Siddharth was perfect for the song. Rakyesh and Prasoon both thought that Siddharth was perfect.''
