In a bid to encourage people so that they don’t lose hope, ‘Phir Tera Time Aayega’ reminds us that our time will come again! We too, can be free to pursue our lives with vigour and passion again, the song imparts. “With an interesting hip-hop rap section thrown in the middle, the song extolls the gutsiness and resilience of the human race, all the while reaffirming faith in the never-say-die attitude that is so intrinsic of every Indian,” avers Vinod G Nair.

“I wanted to create a song that would cheer people up and make them want to dance with joy and abandon,” states Hariharan while adding, “Phir tera Time Aayega is my tribute to the tenacity of every Indian.”

“The lockdown is not just a calamity. It is also an opportunity to find new skills and aptitudes and for people to take stock of their lives and appreciate what life has given them. Chal dhoond le naye saaz ko, Nayi cheekh de alfaaz ko…,” says veteran playback singer-composer Roopkumar Rathod while Reewa Rathod adds, “We want to reach out to the youth of India in a language of song that they understand – Ye Daur Bhi Guzar Jayega…Phir Tera Time Aayega.”

Legendary Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, who is also an avid drummer, adds, “Everyday, all we see is depressing news… and what the world needs right now is hope and joy. This song is created for people to once again remember the joys of life and look forward to a hopeful tomorrow.”

“This is not a national song… it is a people’s song”, says ace comedian Kapil Sharma, “and all we want is to get people to smile through this toughest of times”.

The #PhirTeraTimeAayega track will release across all music platforms including Saavn, Amazon, Apple Music, Spotify, Gaana and will be available for download on YouTube and other social media platforms!
