Today, if she would've been there, she would be very happy)."

After the performance, Sushant said, "I lost my mother when I was 16 years old. She used to be happy for me about little-little things. Today there's so much that I have achieved but she is not there. She always believed that I would become something big. When I heard this song, I was sure that I would like to do something on it because I wanted to tell maa that I really miss her."
