“This song became even more special to me when my mother stepped aboard to pen the lyrics. To have created the song with her for a series is a first that I will always cherish. My mother has been the loudest voice of encouragement as far as my pursuit of music is concerned. It’s awesome that we got to bond over music professionally for a series that is my dream come true. I never saw it coming,” he added.
“A Suitable Boy” follows the story of four families over a period of 18 months and centres on Mrs. Rupa Mehra’s efforts to arrange the marriage of her younger daughter, Lata, to a “suitable boy”.
