Sonu Nigam said, “What these stories are trying to achieve is all heart. Without any barriers, without any conditions. Celebrating the purity of love, of owning oneself, just like in Baai. So when Jeet Gannguli approached me for lending my voice to Kaisi Baatein Karte Ho, I fell in love and just could not refuse. Its great to be a part of this fantastic anthology’s musical offering.”
Speaking about the beautiful music of the celebration of love, composer and singer Nikhil D’souza said, “It was an extremely exciting opportunity for me when I learn that I needed to design the theme song of Modern Love – a show that I absolutely adore . It made the process all the more exciting and fulfilling. Modern Love Mumbai celebrates love in its different shades and I hope that I was able to match this thought with my music that everyone can enjoy as much as I did.”
Ram Sampath said, “Liberation and self-love are two such delicate petals of the idea of love. What makes the music of Raat Rani wholesome is that it enhances just that, its not just about companionship, but also self-discovery. Modern Love Mumbai is ensuring that music is celebrated in all its shades along with the emotions.”
Kamakshi Khanna said, “Beautifully etching words into memories, every song from Modern Love Mumbai, including mine –Yaadein, is a different emotion in itself. It truly is a great honor to be a part of such a remarkable anthology that is not only bringing about charming stories but also fantastic musicians together on one single platform with a global scale.”
