The lullaby has been composed by the talented duo Ajay-Atul and Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned the incredibly heart-touching lyrics.[/caption]
“Viktor wanted to show the beautiful father-daughter like relationship between the two that develops ever since Zafira was a child. He wanted to show the deep trust, the love and the respect that Zafira has for Khudabaksh and decided to add a moment of vulnerability between the two. Khudabaksh will be seen protecting Zafira at every step and they are inseparable souls. He will be seen trying to make Zafira, who fights the brutal memories of her past, sleep by singing a lullaby. Mr. Bachchan was moved doing this scene and decided that he wants to sing the lullaby himself!” reveals a source.
“Mr. Bachchan was so kicked about singing this lullaby that he decided to record it himself and that too at his home! The initial idea was to make a short lullaby but Mr. Bachchan went a step further and converted it into a song. He is insisting that Adi puts it into the album,” the source adds.
Amitabh Bachchan says, “The song tells you the depth of the bond that Zafira and Khudabaksh share. I was most excited to sing this lullaby because it is not everyday that you get to sing one. The lyrics are beautiful and the composition highlights the emotional journey of these two characters who have an incredible father-daughter relationship. I have been telling Adi to put this in the album. I’m sure he will do it because it’s turned out to be a beautiful song.”
