Singer Stebin Ben is quite excited about his second musical collaboration with TV actor, Sara Khan (currently seen in Woh Apna Sa). The two have just released a music video of their single, Lekin Woh Mera Ishq Hai, on YouTube.
“It is a beautiful emotional song about what we feel about our past relationships. Being very close to our heart, we have kept it very simple, following the Indie rock style of music. We had finished recording a while back, but shot the video when we recently visited Tanzania for some show. Sara herself directed the cute video. The DOP was new, so Sara handheld him all the way but eventually, she got what she wanted. It was quite windy that day, yet we finished in a day. Do watch and let us know what you feel about the song and video.”
Talking about Sara’s crooning efforts, Stebin, who is a reality show product (Best Performer, MTV Rockstar, 2011) says, “She has really grown as a singer. At first, she would sing just for fun, but now is getting the professional hang of things. You will not be able to find flaws in her rendition.”
Prior to this, they had also sung a mash-up (Every Night and Hosh Walon ko Khabar Kya). “It had become quite a rage on Facebook and Instagram.”
Talking about the response to the single, Lekin Woh Mera Ishq Hai, Stebin, who has also sung for an ALT Balaji show, Class of 2017, says, “So far, we have had a soft launch. Sara, who is producing the video as well, is working on the marketing and promotional aspects. I am sure we will give a big hit again.”
“YouTube is the best way to launch your song or talents, as it gives you a direct connect with millions of young consumers, not only in India, but all over the world. Sara is already a well-known name in Pakistan post her TV shows across the border. My last song, Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein, also got millions of YouTube views.”
Looking ahead, this Bhopali lad would want to collaborate more with Sara. “My ultimate aim is to become a Bollywood playback artist.”
We sure hope that this original composition will set you on your way. All the best!!!
