That friend called Jaani, at that time he was going somewhere by bus. That friend told about Hardy Sandhu’s song on the phone itself. While sitting in the bus, Jaani said, tell me the lyrics of the song, then narrate the lyrics of the song to him.

After this Jaani told his friend that the love of this girl is beyond your thinking. You don’t understand how much she loves you.
