It was when Brijwasi Brothers, a group of classical singers from Mathura, took to the stage to perform Parineeti reminisced her training sessions.

Parineeti got emotional as the group sang “Saaware jiya jaye na”.

“I remember how I could never sing this song and I used to request my guruji to always sing this song. The moment I heard the word ‘Saaware’, I was reminded of my days when I used to train and my eyes automatically welled up,” Parineeti said in a statement.

“My guru always used to tell me that whenever someone’s piece of art touches your heart, you should take their blessings and while she could not take their blessings because they were like little brothers to her, she could bow down to them,” she added.

The “Ishaqzaade” actress then went on to do a ‘Sashtang Namaskar’ to the group of singers.
