We truly enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with all the cool artists from across India as lent their flavour to the much-revered theme of Yaari.”

The teams have worked hard to ensure that the tracks are a treat both sonically and visually and we hope the audiences appreciate this with the same passion that it has been created with.”
