���The first time I heard the song Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2, on the radio I totally fell in love with it. It is a male song originally sung by Arijit Singh. I loved his husky voice and immediately felt I could connect with it and wanted to do my very own female Cover version of the track, with a slight difference. Nilesh composed the piano pieces and I recorded my vocals to it and we just released it last week. So far has got very good feedback. It’s definitely the ‘hottest’ Bollywood track out there right now and I think it will be the biggest song of 2013.”
