  1. Great song and one of the best Zohrabai songs that I end up hearing on a daily basis. Actually I think Zohrabai suits Cuckoo more than Shamshad Begum etc.

  2. Thanks, I think it’s a great song too. I also like the match of Zohrabai’s voice with Cuckoo visually, but I’ve read that Shamshad Begum was chosen most often for Cuckoo because, among the playback singers, her voice was closest to Cuckoo’s.
