Sharing his experience, he said, “Since the concept of the show is so unique, the lyrics and the singing for it also had to be unique. I have paid attention to melody, but my focus has been more on decoding the right meaning of the song. This is the first time that I have sung for a web show, and the experience has been quite amazing. My singing for this song has been mostly influenced by my theatre experiences.”
