In 1991, Jatin Pandit gave music for the classic chartbuster “Bin Tere Sanam” from the movie Yaara Dildara. After 30 years, he has penned a new original song with the words “Bin Tere” for his son Raahul. Commenting on the same, Raahul said, “Both are very different types of songs. Honestly, I had never even thought about this comparison earlier. It just a twist of fate that both the songs have the words “Bin Tere” in them. My dad and my uncle Lalitji have given some incredible music – today it’s hard to imagine anybody giving so many great songs one after another. I have just started my journey as a musician, as an artist, as a singer. There is a long way to go, and I can never even think of comparing myself to my dad and my uncle. They have done some landmark work, work that is kind of just irreplaceable in today’s day and age. I have composed Bin Tere from my heart and that’s about it. I just hope that everybody likes it.”
WARRIORS was born out of Covid led downtime and Italia scored this song to fuel courage within his friends and family which has caught international attention.

Raahul Jatin, the multifaceted musical talent has come up with his third single Yaadein Aane Lagi, a ballad sung and composed by him while the lyrics are penned by his father, legendary music director, Jatin Pandit. The melodious romantic number features Raahul and the music production is done by Aditya Dev and Raahul.
US-based actress and model Madison Trunnell features in the song as Raahul’s love interest. The couple is seen romancing in the lush green countryside, a vintage scenic house& beautiful locales in California. The music video was entirely shot in the US with a very limited crew size and following all protocols and guidelines pertaining to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaking about the song, Raahul said, “It is a romantic number which I feel would appeal to the youth. Has a very cool vibe. I actually intended to compose another upbeat number but with the general state of affairs, I believe there is melancholy in the air. The world has slowed down and there is uncertainty. I started with high octane notes, but I ditched it altogether because it just did not feel right and I ended up composing a ballad. I got my parents to hear a scratch version of it, my father was very gracious to work on the lyrics and we promptly recorded it. We recorded it in Mumbai during the lockdown. Then when I came to US during the later half of the pandemic, my producer Dr. Sandhu heard the song, and we decided to shoot it.“
Talking about the shoot Raahul said, “This is my first video shot outside India. I was a bit apprehensive initially, especially with the ongoing pandemic. However, it all worked out smoothly. We worked with a limited crew and wrapped up the shoot in a record time frame, given the number of locations we covered. We did not even include hairstylist and make-up artist in the crew to keep the head count as minimum as possible. We were all tested prior to the shoot. It was a fun shoot, we were all in-sync and energized& therefore it was a very fulfilling experience. I met Madison for the 1st timebut it didn’t feel like that. She is so pretty, congenial& easy to work with despite not understanding Hindi. My Director Harper has done an amazing job. He was operating the camera, lighting and the drone single handedly. He was like a One Man Army. Shooting this single was a memorable experience that I will always cherish and remember.
The 3.30-minute-long romantic number was shot across San Francisco, Jamestown, Copperopolis, Bay Area and Sonora all flat in one day with a limited crew size of four people including the actors. It will be released by Funk Box in Association with Jatin Pandit.
Speaking about the lyrics, ace music director Jatin Pandit said, “The idea of music has really changed with Raahul’s generation, so I was very surprised when I heard the tune in its raw form. In a strange way it took me back to Pehla Nasha so I offered to help with the lyrics. The concept, melody and even the idea of a slow soft tune is all Raahul’s. I was tempted to meddle with the music a bit, but I refrained because an original composition is always the best”.
Raahul made his musical debut with “Aankhon Ke Ishaare” released by Zee Music and followed it up with a somber and, soulful prayer song “Prabhu Hum Ko Kshama Kar” alongside his father at the outset of Covid-19 pandemic in India.

Shot over three days in Mauritius, Sauda is a Punjabi folk-inspired song composed by Samir Saptiskar and directed by Samir Khan. Natashaa along with the crew shot for three days and talking about her experience on the same, Natashaa said, “Acting is instinctive, it is many lives in one. I have been working in television commercials for a long time now and making this transition has been a fulfilling experience. While advertisements are more purpose-driven communication, a music video has more scope for an actor. Any form comes with a learning experience and I am trying to make the most of it, I am eager to explore longer roles now”.
Talking about the concept behind the music video of Sauda and her experience, she shares, “Sauda is an excellent combination of a folk tune with a touch of chic. It is an ode to all the free-spirited women. The concept is about a girl, who leaves her workaholic husband on their honeymoon to go out and explore a new city all by herself. I don’t know if it is appropriate to say this but I feel it has some essence of Kangana Ranaut’s character Rani in the film Queen. It is the most loved character of all time and it almost gave me an adrenaline rush when the director narrated the story, it was like a moment of epiphany.”
Natashaa Iyer has worked in television commercials for host topline brands like Pizza Hut, Byjus, Royal Enfield, TVS, B4u Network, Big Bazaar, Hyundai, and many more.
