Sonam Kapoor along with her father and veteran actor Anil Kapoor will be launching ‘Mere Papa’ song by Gulshan Kumar’s daughters Tulsi and Khushali Kumar. The song was sung live by Tulsi Kumar earlier at the show ‘Suron Ke Rang’ held in 2015.
To pay tribute to his father late Gulshan Kumar, son Bhushan Kumar had organised ‘Suron Ke Rang’ where many film celebrities had come together. It was at that event where Tulsi performed the song which left everyone teary-eyed. It was then that Bhushan decided to make it into a song which would feature both his sisters Tulsi and Khushali.
‘Mere Papa’ has been sung by Tulsi Kumar herself with lyrics written by the extremely talented Manoj Muntashir.
Tulsi said, “I was my papa’s favourite and most pampered child. When I went to the studio to record the song I got extremely emotional and just couldn’t hold myself. But I guess it was my father and his blessings that gave me the strength to record this song so beautifully. Ever since the song was performed at the show, I received a lot of fan mail where everyone showered their love for this song as it struck an emotional chord with all listeners.”

“The biggest compliment came from singer Sonu Nigam (who I really look upto) that this is by far the best rendered song by me and it made him super emotional. My father wanted to see me become a singer and today where I am is because of him. ‘Mere Papa’ is my tribute to him,” she added.
Khushali also said that she couldn’t hold her emotions back while Tusli was rehearsing for the song. She said, “Our father dedicated his life to music and always taught us the language of music. He always used to say that music is such a strong medium to express your feelings which you generally cannot do with even words. Main chaand kahoon.. mujhe chaand mile.. kaise kaise jaadu kare .. Mere Papa.”
The song will be launched by Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor in Mumbai today.
