Kunal Kemmu on Hum Yahin

While sharing interesting anecdotes about Madgaon Express’ ‘Hum Yahin’, Kunal Kemmu said, “I love singing I have always done it as a hobby. This was never the plan, there was an artist from another country who used to speak a different language altogether, we heard that song and we loved that song and it was not a song on friendship but we loved the tune and the voice and we reached out to that young artist. He was in his zone; he was a bit spaced out and I wanted him to sing it in Hindi as a friendship song but there were too many delays happening in that.”

Kunal further added, “I remember that we were recording another song. Ankur Tiwari and I were at the studio and I just asked him to pick up the guitar I said that guy is not doing anything we will do something, as soon as he started playing the guitar I had the thought about Dodo which is basically ‘Hum Yahin’ and I think everybody will relate with this song.”

He continued, “So when Ankur was playing I started humming it and at first I had only two lines but overnight I wrote the song. I called Ankur the next day and told him that I have a song. I narrated the song to him. He loved it. We presented the same to Farhan and Ritesh, they loved it too. So this is how this song came on board.”
