I have sung a small part of the song and I am very thrilled to be associated with a song as iconic as this one,” said the former beauty queen. “This year truly has started on a high note for me. Madhubala Ji was an icon for Indian cinema who mesmerised audiences not only with her exquisite beauty but also with her ability to renders some of the deepest emotions on-screen and her remarkable acting skills and timeless beauty she created a mark for herself and as remembered till date, so to be a part of her song is a dream come true,” added Urvashi.
