Television actor Karan Mehra of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fame has got a Valentine’s Day gift from his wife Nisha Rawal – a song! But that’s also a gift from him to her. Here’s how. Nisha, who has acted in TV shows like Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki, turned singer and is known for her cover versions. The actress-singer has released a Valentine’s Day special song. It’s a cover of two songs – the Meherbani song from Bollywood film The Shaukeens, composed by Arko, and Ellie Goulding’s hit English song Love me like you do.

The beautiful Nisha also appears in the music video for Meherbani and Love me like you do, and the video is directed by her husband himself! Shot in outdoor, the video has ample aerial shots and shows Nisha in wonderful frames. The singer looks hot in a red / scarlet gown by designer Rohit Verma. “I have designed this gown specially for Nisha’s music video. We wanted the look to be classic yet edgy. Nisha is just looking stunning in the gown,” says Rohit.

Nisha says she has always been a romantic at heart and the season of romance is best defined by music and especially her music that has become an integral part of her life. What was once a passion for her has now become a full-time profession for the actress. She does regular riyaaz in classical music. It shows, as Nisha has done a good job in the seamless mash up of Meherbani and Love me like you do.

But why the cover of these two songs together? Nisha reveals, “I love both these songs to the core. It was during our brain storming sessions that I was humming these songs and suddenly it struck us how will it be if we mash up these two songs. I had never imagined that the songs will be this good together. I immediately reached out to my mentor, the Meet Bros and they loved the idea, which off course boosted my confidence. Both the songs have a similar message but the route of expressing differs. Together they create a perfect harmony.”

Doting husband Karan Mehra, who was in the news for wanting to quit Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, has proved his directorial skills with this music video for his wife. Karan says, “The video was our way to celebrate valentine’s season. Both of us have very hectic schedules and we really wanted to spend some quality time together. I took on the task of directing because I felt working together would be a fresh way to celebrate valentine’s season. It also gave us a lot of creative satisfaction to really build on something together.”
