Talking about Ranjhana being a part of Rajkummar Rao-Janhvi Kapoor, Lakshya Kapoor says: “Mr. and Mrs. Mahi ke liye yeh gaana bana hi nahi tha. Actually, mera koi gaana tha – with a famous composer, yes, film mein. Bohot pyaara gaana tha aur woh shoot bhi hua tha. Mujhe nahi pata what happened last minute edit mein kya change hua. (This song was not created for Mr. and Mrs. Mahi. Another song of mine appeared in this film, it was even shot. But who knows what happened in the end)

He continued “Mr. and Mrs. Mahi ke liye yeh gaana nahi bana tha. Ranjhana was made for Yodha – another Dharma film. We fell in love with this song from day one. I jab Kavitaji (Kavita Seth) ne iss gaane ko gaaya toh yeh gaana aur authentic, aur pyaara nikhal ke aaye. It became more beautiful. (The song was written for Yodha. When Kavita sang it, the song gained more character and authenticity. It became even more beautiful.) “

Talking about how Ranjhana became a part of Mr. and Mrs. Mahi, he said, “In one beautiful moment, I came to know that they are putting this song in this film and this is how they are going to promote it. I was very happy because just ek movie pehle Janhvi Kapoor ke saath mera ek gaana bagut hit hua tha. Maybe she’s a talisman for my music. This is how it happened…”

He added “I saw a video, the official video of uska 2-3 din mein releasing hoga, which also has many of BTS dubbing the song. It’s a beautiful video. I’m sure more and more people will like it. It’s being loved.”
