The number, close to Jonita’s heart was an easy yes for her and she said, “Bollywood songs from the yesteryears bring out a different emotional connection within me. Aji Rooth Kar is one of those songs that was played often at home, and I loved learning from Lataji’s expressive singing. The cherry on top is that it’s one of my mom’s all-time favorite songs. I was as happy as always to collaborate with Keba for this one and I really hope you all like our interpretation of the song!”
