About Song :- Sung by Monali Thakur, this song is a reinterpretation of the classic from Umrao Jaan. Karsh chose to include this because of his memories from childhood where he would sit and watch old Hindi films with his mother on holidays. The reworking here has Monali singing English parts as well.

“Dil, Dil
Bas Ek baar mera kaha , Bas
Dil Cheez kya hain aap meri jaan lijiye

Is, Is Anjuman mein aaaaa
Is, Is Anjuman mein aaapko

Aana, Deewaron Dar ko ghaur se
Deewaron, Dil

In this world of loneliness..I
I don’t know how the sound of you in my heart…
makes me cry…I don’t know how it became a lie…I don’t know why…yeaa

Kahiye tohh,
kahiye toh aasmaan ko.
Kahiye toh aasmaan ko zameen par utaar laaye.

Mushkilm Mushkil nahin hain kuchh bhi
Agar thaan lijiye.
Dil cheez kya hain aap meri jaan lijiye.
Bas ek baar mera kahaa maan lijiye
Bas ek baar, Haan Bas ek baar
