Singer Sonu Nigam also expressed that he feels unlucky that he did not have the opportunity to sing for legendary music composer Rahul Dev Burman. “I feel lucky that I met Panchamda, but I also feel unlucky because he wanted me to sing in ‘1942: A Love Story’. However, at that time, I went to Delhi and was there for three months.
“When I returned to Mumbai, someone told me that Panchamda (Rahul Dev Burman) was looking for me and he was keen that I should sing a song for him but nevertheless, I still feel connected to him and his legacy will stay forever through his music.”
