The cover song captures the mood of the month- a perfect Valentine tune which is supported by a classy video, directed by none other than, Karan Mehra. Nisha has always been a romantic at heart and the season of romance is best defined by music.

Music has become an integral part of Nisha’s life and what was once passion has now become a profession. Music lovers today, are quickly moving beyond the barriers of language and Nisha has captured this transition greatly with a mash up of ‘Meherbani’ and ‘Love Me Like You Do’. The two songs are seamlessly merging with a flawless music arrangement. With regular training in classical music and riyaaz,Nisha has effortlessly delivered both the tracks from different genres and languages.

Speaking on her latest musical offering, Nisha said, “I love both these songs to the core. It was during our brain storming sessions that I was humming these songs and suddenly it struck us how will it be if we mash up these two songs. I had never imagined that the songs will be this good together. I immediately reached out to my mentor, Meet Bros duo and they loved the idea, which off course boosted my confidence. Both the songs have a similar message but the route of expressing differs. Together they create a perfect harmony”.

The song is shot outdoor in a beautiful and quaint location. The video opens with an aerial shot capturing the scale and the vast expanse of the beautiful location. The singer is looking gorgeous in a classic scarlet gown created by ace designer Rohit Verma.

“I have designed this gown specially for Nisha’s music video. We wanted the look to be classic yet edgy. Nisha is just looking stunning in the gown.”

Talking about the video, Karan said,

“The video was our way to celebrate valentine’s season. Both of us have very hectic schedules and we really wanted to spend some quality time together. I took on the task of directing because I felt working together would be a fresh way to celebrate valentine’s season. It also gave us a lot of creative satisfaction to really build on something together”.

The music video will be available on Nisha’s youtube channel and it is a purely non commercial venture, celebrating love and Nisha’s passion for music.
