Sharing his experience, Daler Mehndi says, “I am doing a solo performance on my songs – Kudiyan Shehar Diyan and Na Na Na Re. Music director Abhijit Vaghani has created a wonderful version of the song and given me a chance to revive my chartbusters thereby giving a new life to the songs. In fact, I am dancing quite a bit while performing.”

Talking about how digital platform is turning out to a boon for artists across the world, he further comments saying, “Times have changed a lot from the time I started my career. Artistes now have grown so much through a digital platform. My yesteryear songs are trending online even after so many years. Digital platforms help you connect with your international fans and thereby help create a wider fan base, as well. Today's generation is attached to digital and social media. I am thankful to god to see this digital age and moreover being part of same too. With the T-Series Mixtape special Punjabi edition, people around the world are going to get their dancing shoes out.

Music director Abhijit Vaghani says, “Daler Mehndi is a legend. Both his numbers are still being sought after and are massive hits. The challenge was to do justice to him and recreate a new version which people could enjoy again but on one track. Creating his tracks was a brilliant experience as he shared a lot of creative inputs which was valuable and his knowledge in this industry also helped.”
