The eight-episode series has more than 20 of the biggest Indian artists joining hands to pay tribute to the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar. In the upcoming episode, Arijit Singh will perform to some of Lata Didi's evergreen songs, to name a few – 'Jo waada kiya woh', 'Tujhse naraaz nahi zindagi', 'Dikhaiye diye yu' and many more.

Speaking about the episode, Arijit Singh said, "These songs seem easy but when you sing you realise it's not easy at all. Every song has different memories attached to it. I was introduced to Lataji's songs at an early age by my mother and that is how the love and respect for Lataji was seeded in me."

Gajendra Singh, Sai Baba Studios said, "When I approached Arijit, I was pleasantly surprised with his prompt consent to be part of this show. He did a lot of research on the songs that he would sing, in terms of mood and feel of the songs. He rehearsed from 2 PM to 2 AM, sat with each musician and did the song setup.  The Shooting for Arijit’s episode went on through an entire night. He sang a 40 minute Hindi- Bengali medley that’s mesmerising”.
