Abhinash then sang ‘Aas Paas Khuda’ from Anjaana Anjaani & Neha couldn’t stop crying during his entire performance. Vishal who gave music for this track then told Abhinash,
“Yeh gaana Rahat sahab (Rahat Fateh Ali Khan) ne gaya tha, Shekhar ne bol likhe the. Aur, aaj iss gane ke bol mujhe bhi samajh mein aye hain, aapke gaane se. Main bas aapse mere gane ko matlab dene ke liye shukriya ada karna chahunga.”
Neha completed Abhinash’s performance by telling her that life is beautiful and never do such things in the future.
