Indian Idol 10 winner Salman Ali and playback singer Vipin Aneja (Jazbaa and Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster) are out with an original track titled Manzar and also the music video. The duo announced the launch of the song on social media. This soft and melodious song is written by lyricist Gilbert Chettiar, founder of Lafzon Music and directed by Devansh Patel. The song, featuring Prashantt Guptha, was shot during the pandemic across interesting locations in Mumbai.
Talking about the birth of Manzar and how the lyrics came to life, lyricist Gilbert Chettiar says, “Only when the world around us shuts down, we begin to realise and become more aware of the reality around us, and value things. I wrote Manzar in August 2020 sitting here in London. Manzar was born out of separation, hardship and the frustration of the pandemic. Manzar to me is self-realisation.”
