Salim Merchant on Sidhu Musewala’s last song- He said he needs more time

Shortly after the death of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala in May, we reported that composers Salim-Sulaiman had hoped to release a single with him in June. The two compose a poem; Jaandi Vaar, on September 1, as a tribute to Musewala, 28. “He feels that the real Sidhu is not around. He was supposed to release the song on June 8 and he was killed on May 29. I don’t know why we went through Easter, shares a sad Salim Mercator.

Recalling how the track works, the 47-year-old says, “In 2021, Afsana Khan (singer) suggested that we work with Sidhu. I had a composition from Punjabi, so I came to meet him in Chandigarh. When I had a meeting with Sidhu, he said- Sir, give me time. I will certainly sing, but I have to prepare time. I felt Sidhu loves to sing his own songs and compositions. I heard one of his songs and liked it. It was a sad love song and he immediately connected with it. So I made some notes for the female part (sung by Afsana) and the song was made Jaandi Vaar,

Salim shared on social media that some of the proceeds from the song will go to the family’s late music. “We joined the company, which is a platform where you can have a certain portion of the song. So, whenever one makes money, we get equity. I felt the Sidhu family knows about it. This is a great way to build a charity fund.
