Jaideep Sahani
Scriptwriter of Befikre

Aditya Chopra had planned a film in Paris and described the situation and context to both me and Vishal Shekhar. Shekhar brought together Algerian and European influences in the music. Once the musical tone for the spatial context was set, it was easy for me to write the lyrics to go with it. Knowing a space always plays a role in the way I write lyrics, whether for Rab ne bana di jodi or for Befikre. In one of the songs, I introduced French words to go with the context. I felt Vishal had created a European context with the music that allowed me to work the lyrics in to suit the music.
