Artistes don't belong to one country but to the whole world. We give the message of peace and tranquility through our skills, be it acting or music.

Music is a religion, which brings the people of all the religions on one platform. People dance, listen to and enjoy music without categorizing themselves as Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Hindus. I think there should be only one religion of music. One CD dedicated to Cocktail Night, done for the first time ever, features popular wedding songs, Boliyan and Tappas.

Sung in contemporary dance music style by Punjabi pop star Jasbir Jassi, the music is all set to enthrall all music lovers.
