Like poetry, good music soothes the soul. More significantly, the theme of desire in a piece of good music goes on to make it nothing short of intriguing.

In all finesse, the song also portrayed the theme of romance. The sweet talks, commendations and heartwarming comparisons did the trick. Maneek’s intention is to ‘fight for your love like chin chin, chon chon’ (Chinese), he shows all his commitment to his loved one. With this, it’s clear that the dance crooner came out bold to express his deepest feeling.
