Before singing the next song, the title song of Kal Ho Naa Ho, Shankar shared an interesting story of how it was created in barely 10-15 minutes in German Bakery, a popular hangout in Pune, which was later ravaged by a bomb blast.
 
When Javed Akhtar heard the tune, he loved its simplicity so much that he took 25 days to write the lyrics. 

Shankar dedicated the song to the film's director Nikhil Advani, who was sitting in the audience.

After that, Shankar sang the title track of Rock on!!.
