Yesterday, the super successful musical collaboration of Baadshah and Aastha Gill, who have earlier given chartbusters like DJ Wale Babu, Buzz and Proper Patola, came up with their new song, Paani Paani. The music video for it features the gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez, and the song has already broken several records making it the most viewed Indian song in one day as it crossed the 25 million mark on YouTube in just a day.
Overwhelmed with the response to the song, Aastha cannot help but feel excited and grateful. While talking to Spotboye.com exclusively from South Africa, where she is currently shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Khatron Ke Khiladi 11, the singer shares the story behind the song.
The idea of the song originated in Baadshah’s mind as Aastha informs us. “I was in the middle of a recording at a studio when Baadshah bhai sent me a voice note of the song, without any other brief and told me to dub it and send it to him. I asked him what the feel of the song should be, amongst other things and he said to me that Jacqueline is a part of the song, now it was up to me how I wanted to do it. Her name was enough for me to say yes,” she gushes.
Aastha goes on to assert that Jacqueline is as beautiful of a human being off-screen as she appears on the screen. “I was overwhelmed with the fact that she was a part of this song because I knew that she was the only one who could justify it. When I met her for the first time on set, I fell in love with her. She is such a sweetheart and made me feel so comfortable. She said that my voice suited her so much that she wanted me to sing all of her songs from now on. And all I could feel was that I love her, just marry me,” she laughs, adding that when she saw her moves on her vocals, she was mesmerised. “After seeing the video, my mind was blown. All I would say is that she killed it,” the singer concludes.
