Rakul and I really enjoyed shooting this peppy romantic number. Tanishk has done an impressive job with the music of Saathiya. It’s the tune that you will listen to while driving and even groove at a party, it will grow on you and before you know you’re humming it. It’s one of my favourites from the album.”
Rakul, on the hand, said, “Saathiya is one of my most favourite songs from the film. I think it’s a very refreshing melody, it’s after a very long I have heard a romantic melodious track. I truly believe that this will touch people’s hearts. The energy, the tune, the romance, and the peppy upbeat romance that the song has is amazing. We shot this in beautiful locations with 10-11 Rovers and 3-4 big planes and us standing on top of the wings and dancing. And I remember it was cold and I was in a corset but nevertheless I thought it come out well and its truly worth it, and of course working with Akshay Sir and matching to his energy and Ganesh master choreographed it, so, all in all, I think I love this song and really hope that people like it.”
