Jaise hi meri picture flop ho gayi, next din maine phone karke suru kiye musicians ko. I started calling musicians are soon as my picture started flopping. I collected a bunch of musicians from Coke studio. Ek band banaya, 15 gaane ready kiye. Made up and prepared 15 songs and I was ready for the gig. So we started performing. I was like I can do this because I’d love doing it.”
