One of the most important parts of friendship is harmony.
And building this harmony comes naturally when both of you like the same kind of music!
As an ode to such partnerships-turned-yaaris in Bollywood, McDowell's Soda #No1YaariJam TV Show brings musicians in for a candid chat and jam session.
On the 3rd episode of the now popular show, hosts Salim Merchant and Anuskha Manchanda brought together what he calls the 'atrangi but satrangi' duo of Amit Trivedi and Amitabh Bhattacharya!
While these two musical masters have given us one hit after another, there's a lot that goes behind the notes.
The episode explored how their yaari, just like their music, is in perfect sync, which lets them pull our heartstrings with songs like Emosanal Atyachaar among many others.
And while you MUST check out the whole episode, here are some of the best highlights from it that we just can't get over!
1. When Amitabh and Amit possibly revealed the inspiration behind the popular Band Bajaa Baraat song ‘Ainvayi Ainvayi’.
2. When Amitabh had a hilarious insight to share about their 16 years of yaari.
