Watch the live recording of the song Luka Chuppi composed for Rang De Basanti sung by A.R. Rahman and Lata Mangeshkar.

Asking about A.R. Rahman, this was what Lataji has to say – A.R. Rahman is very talented. I’ve sung very few songs for him. I love Jiya jale, Khamoshiyan gun-guna lagi, O paalan haare and Luka chuppi. Rahman and I came together for the first time for the evergreen Jiya jale in Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se…

Then we collaborated for a prayer-song Ek tu hi bharosa in Pukar. It was a very special song. Because I sang it on screen myself. But I must admit Jiya jale was a very special song too. It became such a rage. And I’m asked to sing that song at every concert that I go to.
