Actress Kriti Sanon celebrated five years of her film Raabta on Thursday with a special video. The Instagram post, which has won the hearts of fans online, features the Bollywood star singing the title track of the film with a guitarist in what appears to be a hotel. Dresses in a simple top, pair of shorts and with a coffee mug in hand, Kriti is at her causal best as she belts out the song amid encouraging nods from the unnamed musician by her side. The video even ends with the man telling Kriti, “Very nice,” which she acknowledges with a smile. Sharing the video, Kriti Sanon quoted the song in the caption: “Meherbani jaate jaate mujhpe kar gaya, guzratasa lamha ek daaman bhar gaya,” with an infinity emoji.
Kriti Sanon further wrote, “This one was special in many ways. A film full of memories. A journey close to my heart. And I’m glad to have walked it with the two of you: Sushant and Dinoo,” referring to her co-star, the late Sushant Singh Rajput and director-producer Dinesh Vijan.
In the post-script, the star added, “P.S. Excuse the singing, emotions are pure!”
Kriti Sanon also mentioned in the caption that the video was recorded by director Amar Kaushik. It appears that the singing session took place during the shoot of Amar Kaushik’s Bhediya which stars Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan.

After Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Kriti Sanon had shared some stills have Raabta along with a note. An excerpt from the note from 2020 reads, “Sush…I knew that your brilliant mind was your best friend and your worst enemy. A part of my heart has gone with you and a part will always keep you alive…Never stopped praying for your happiness and never will.”
