Talking about his experience of directing and choreographing his mentor, Saurabh said, “Life has come by in a full circle, this will always be one of my most cherished works, as I got to choreograph and direct my mentor Terence Sir. The melody of the song is sweet and playful, so the direction and movement had to be more candid and natural. Directing ‘Tu hai toh’ was challenging amidst all the limitations but we all gelled well as a team and everyone had the same vision. Shoot on sets was quite smooth and we finished the entire shoot in 6 hours.”

Saurabh added, “This is my third video out in a month’s time and I loved exploring a different side of me while not just choreographing but also directing the music video. I am so glad to see the response my work has been getting and everyone’s loving the look and feel of the music video. The music video is flowy, smooth, has a lot of emotions and the flavour is very catchy. “
