The song was sung by Tulsi Kumar live in a function hosted by her brother Bhushan Kumar. Tulsi and Bhushan are children of erstwhile music director and singer – Gulshan Kumar. Bhushan Kumar had organized ‘Suron Ke Rang’ that saw many film celebrities attend to pay tribute to his father. The song was emotional and left everyone a little teary.
Bhushan Kumar later decided to release the song publicly featuring both his sisters – Tulsi and Khushali.
The lyrics have been written by Manoj Muntashir and are sung by Tulsi.
Tulsi said, “I was my papa’s favourite and most pampered child. When I went to the studio to record the song I got extremely emotional and just couldn’t hold myself. But I guess it was my father and his blessings that gave me the strength to record this song so beautifully. Ever since the song was performed at the show, I received a lot of fan mail where everyone showered their love for this song as it struck an emotional chord with all listeners.”
“The biggest compliment came from singer Sonu Nigam (who I really look upto) that this is by far the best rendered song by me and it made him super emotional. My father wanted to see me become a singer and today where I am is because of him. ‘Mere Papa’ is my tribute to him,” she added.
The song was released on April 1 by the father daughter duo – Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor.
