There was something different in Daler Mehndi that only Vishal Bhardwaj has been able to see until then, and couraged to expose that to his audience. It also explained Mehndi’s recurrent performance in Bhardwaj soundtracks. Vishal Bhardwaj appreciated Daler Mehndi to sing a Quwali for his second film ‘Maqbool’ after ‘Chupke Se’.
A delightful Urdu composition sung brilliantly by Bhangra-pop king Daler Mehndi, ‘Ru Ba Ru’ showcased an entirely new dimension of the Artist. Mehndi showed his versatility as a classical singer when he shifted from his Bhangra pop image and sang 'Ru Ba Ru’.
