I really look forward to this myself as a filmmaker since music forms such an integral part of a movie. With our cinema evolving so much, a film's sound and music play a key role in defining its plot and the characters. I’ve grown up listening to Indian music, and that has been a major influence in my life and work. Hence, I'd love to be a part of this collaboration with Amaan and Ayaan."

"Karsh's musicality has always been very aligned with ours and every collaboration is a delight. With this album, we have mixed two worlds of music and it showcases the continuity and endlessness that only music brings. Having Karan Johar launch our album is an honour, he is a visionary in the film world and always motivates us to do better every day", says Amaan Ali Bangash.

Amaan and Ayaan have both mastered this art form and inspire me with their passion. We have worked together in the past and we are on the same wavelength while creating music. Infinity is an album that is special because it brings together two forms of music."
