Benny Dayal, who sang the iconic Ballelaka song from Rajinikanth-starrer Sivaji has finally got to meet the superstar after nearly nine years! The singer is on a high as his recent Hindi song — Ude Dil Befikre — has clocked in over 20 million views and is still going strong.
Speaking to DC, Benny says, “It was just a casual meet on our flight to Mumbai. Even though I started my career with a song for Superstar, I had never met him in person. It was a total surprise and much to my shock, he remembered my name from the Sivaji album.”
The Chalmaar singer termed this as a humbling experience. “He has been my favourite actor from childhood and I’ve always wanted to meet him. As everyone says, he is extremely humble and soft-spoken for his stature,” adds Benny.
Meanwhile, Benny has recorded the title song of Nakul-starrer Sei, which features music composed by NyX Lopez.
