I wanted to share my sincerity and authenticity about this specific love. On an intuitive level, people will always feel it if it is real. I am romantic by nature. I know this, the rest the song speaks for itself.”

The song ‘Jhanjhar’ has been written, composed and sung by Kanika Kapoor. The authentic, specific and inspired song has her collaborating with Deep Money on the music and Nitin Gupta on the lyrics. The song is presented by Zee Music Company.

Nikki said: “I am a fan of Chunky Pandey, so it was great dancing with him. I had come on ‘Zee Comedy Show’ as a guest comedian when Chunky ji was a special guest. We wanted to do something fun, so we did an impromptu dance act. I truly had a great time on the show.”

Chunky Pandey can be seen in the show sharing interesting anecdotes and witty responses as he appears as a special guest. Moreover, Nikki will bring her own sense of humour within the ‘Team Hasaayenge’ that includes 10 comedians as she is appearing as a guest comedian.
