But do you know, there was something that landed Anurag Kashyap and Amit Trivedi in a challenge during the making of this film’s music? Yes, it’s right and we are talking about Ammy Virk’s superhit song Qismat

Basically, highly impressed with the song Qismat, Anurag Kashyap strongly wanted to keep the song in his film Manmarziyaan. He believed the song was a perfect fit for the break-up situation between Rumi (Taapsee Pannu) and Vicky (Vicky Kaushal) in the film. 

But he knew Amit Trivedi would never agree to keep a song of another producer in his film. So, he thought of a fun plan. Anurag reached out to Amit Tridevi and told him that he is impressed with Ammy Virk’s song Qismat and he has made up his mind that he will keep the song in his film.

And do you know what was the result of this fun and open challenge between Anurag Kashyap and Amit Trivedi? It was the superhit and everyone’s all-time favorite track Daryaa. The song is one of the best songs made in Bollywood lately and you’ll be happy to know Ammy Virk gave voice to it.

While describing the same in an Interview, Anurag Kashyap quoted, ‘Maine usko (Amit Trivedi) Ungli Ki Thi.. Maine Use Kaha Isse Achha Gaana Bana Sakta Hai Toh Bana De, Nahi Toh Main Yeh Use Kar Raha Hoon..’
