What more can I say of a song that has Ranbir Kapoor . But yes besides that fact, this is a song that makes you believe that you truly don’t need much to survive. At least not many material things. The things that matter are the little moments, your dreams, your hopes and your aspirations that you manage to gather everyday. The perfect Mantra to a Happy Life, whatever be the circumstances you come from.
