During the event, he has not only talked about the book but also opened up about her mother and his twins Yash and Roohi. He says he didn’t want his kids to listen to Coldplay’s version of nursery rhymes and want them to listen to Hindi films music.
“I have grown up listening to a lot of Hindi film music whether it is Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle among others. I want in their (twins) nursery; some of my favourite music should play all the time. So that my babies to listen to them because I love their song and they should listen what I love, to love me,” new agency IANS quoted him as saying.
Further, the 44-year-old filmmaker says he got the habit of listening to iconic playback singers and late rocker Elvis Presley from his mother Hiroo Johar.
