New Delhi:

The trailer of 'Begum Jaan' has already got the tinselvile talking and now the makers are leaving no other effort to make it more huge. The first track of the film 'Prem Me Tohre' has been released , which is now trending on the internet but apart from this the best part about the song is the singer, none other than Asha Bhosle herself.

Anu Malik, who has given the music for the film comments "I was not keeping well and Ashaji came over to meet me. I immediately told my wife that I have to work with her. Even Srijit Mukherji, the director was unaware of this. I rang up Srijit from the ICU and told him I will resume work in 10 days. I composed a tune at the recording studio, and told Srijit that we should get Ashaji to sing the song. Srijit jumped at the idea. I immediately rang Ashaji and told her to come to my place the next day. When she heard the track, she said this song marks the comeback of Asha Bhosle! My first reaction was when did you go in the first place! Her reaction after recording the song was priceless! She exclaimed that she was truly back! I loved her reaction so much since Ashaji loves singing and music. If you hear the song you will know that such a tone and voice cannot be copied or matched. She's a magic and a miracle! I am honoured to have had the chance to work with her. She's 82 and if you hear her now you will be spellbound!"

Director Srijit Mukherji, further adds, "When a living legend like Asha Bhosle sings for your debut film, it is a miraculous dream come true."

The track is surely a present to all the music lovers. The movie stars Vidya Balan who has tweeted the video of the song in her official twitter account. The movie shall release in cinemas on 14th April 2017.
