Rahman admitted that he wanted to do a duet with Lata Mangeshkar and previously, he had attempted to do it six times, but every single time, the plan fell through. He added that the plan got cancelled almost six times until it finally happened.
Eloborating further, Rahman added that the team spent some time trying to figure out where the song would fit in the film.
The composer further added that they tried to find the right moment in the film where the song would work perfectly and realised that the death scene of R Madhavan’s character where his mother, played by Waheeda Rehman, breaks down was the right moment for ‘Luka Chuppi’.
