Recording songs was a hobby that I liked since I had my hands on first tape recorder that could record voice. I often felt irritated and wanted to do better but was restricted due to the tape recorders capacity. In 1998 I started experimenting with recording on PC. As time progressed the software began to get better and cheaper and so did the hardware. I had already bought some nice keyboards and other equipment to help me play and record on PC. I liked this song so much that I decided to make my own track by copying and following instruments as in original to the best as I could. It was 2004. I was able to distinguish the instruments used in original and I knew that I have bought exactly the same keyboard as the people in Bollywood did for recording such songs. My mixing at the time was OK but I lacked the Mastering part. I lost this and all projects recorded between 2001 until 2008 to a computer failure but luckily the mixed versions were saved on various CD's that I had created in those days. Remember making CD's and distributing to friends and family was another hobby in those years. I tried to Re-Master my old mix. The result is slightly higher volume and perhaps a bit better blend but I could have done much better with the tracks I had recorded with the techniques I learnt between then and now, if I had the original project intact.

Praveen uploaded his cover last week and asked me to share mine too. So here, while the iron is still hot I will hammer the same song but with my own track. Also remember that a professional karaoke for this song came several years later. Hope you all enjoy my cover.
