" We know each other for a very long time. When I moved to Mumbai, she was one of the first people I knew." Says Anamika. 

 "One day she heard the scratch track of the song and really liked it. Then I suggested her to take a day off work and we sat and brainstormed the whole day. And then this project happened" says Aanchal.

Anamika's shares her journey, "I kept seeing Aanchal planning Yatra Original for the longest time and working towards it. When I first heard her first scratch track for a brand she was working for, I was taken aback. She sounded like a dream in that song. I knew that my novel needed one Yatra Original and here we are. No one apart from this dear friend could have done this better I feel! I am glad to have collaborated with Aanchal for this very different idea and thought. This is more like celebration of our dreams and obviously, our friendship. More to come but for now, Ishq Akela it is!’ 

The song is musical narrative of the book. 

"When you hear the song, you would want to know about the book and if you have read the book, you will relate to what the ongoings of the song are. They are interconnected,” says Aanchal. The song has released today on Saavn, while the video will be out on Aanchal's yt channel on the 26th of the same month.  Lyrics are written by Aanchal and Anamika while song is composed and produced by Pranshu Jha who is a Mumbai based composer.

Aanchal says,"Music is what I breath and each day I think of a better way to share my music with music lovers. Yatra Original has not come to me over night, I planned it for over 3 yrs now. I have lost count of the number of weekends, I have spent identifying brands to collaborate and reaching out to them... Ishq Akela, being my first product will always be special and a collaboration with Anamika, my friend makes it all the more special."

The duo share their opinion on the current trend of Bollywood movies incorporating inde music. "Of course we are open to that. However, even if it doesn't happen, we are ok. We just very happy that this stage is achieved by us. We are just looking for positive response."
