One memory of this song : years back at Ruia college fest, a senior college girl once dedicated this track to Arun Kothari (he was a hot professor) during the jam session…He was seated, shyly blushed a deep crimson & smiled. That song has conveyed many a message to the crushes.

Also Tabassum is the inspiration for how to keep the conversation going by ‘acha maine ye bhi suna hai’ instead of ‘aur batao’

Grew up hearing Disco Diwane as a kid. Catchy numbers then and even now.
