Cana­dian aashiqui wins over de­sis

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - SA­MARTH GOYAL

The team be­hind the pop­u­lar Aashiqui 2 (2013) song, Tum Hi Ho, is pleased that a Cana­dian doc­tor sang the song to pro­fess his love to his In­dian wife, Sim­ran Mal­ho­tra, dur­ing their re­cent wed­ding in Bal­ti­more. The video of the groom — Frank Gre­goire — singing the track, has gone vi­ral, and the mak­ers of the orig­i­nal are over the moon.

The song’s com­poser, Mithoon, is proud to know that his song is help­ing peo­ple fall in love. “To see Tum Hi Ho mak­ing peo­ple fall in love and help­ing them spend time with each other gives me im­mense sat­is­fac­tion as a com­poser. I think I’ve achieved what I wanted to say through this song,” he says.

The groom, Frank, told a Cana­dian daily that it took six weeks for him to master the song. “I ap­proached Sim­ran’s mom and she rec­om­mended a few op­tions, one of which was Tum Hi Ho. Once I read the trans­la­tion, I re­alised I couldn’t have found any­thing bet­ter to ex­press my feel­ings to her,” Frank was quoted as say­ing.
