The 'Devdas' actor then said, "I will say this is because of you masterji, while she enacts Saroj Khan and says, You know what she says, " We will do a lot many songs together and I won't want even a single moment to repeat. Every single song should be unique."
Along with the video, the 'Dil' actor noted, "Every conversation with Saroj Ji was full of knowledge, inspiration and energy. That's how she lived life and that is how I will always remember her."
