What's the best part about a director who's also a music composer?

Definitely not the regular promotional press conference ahead of his upcoming film.

Instead, you'll get a beautiful evening with lots of music and live performances.

Rajesh Karkera/ and Hitesh Harisinghani/ come back enthralled.

Vishal Bhardwaj tries his hand at a spy thriller with Khufiya, starring Tabu, Ali Fazal and Wamiqa Gabbi

What better way to introduce it, but in wife Rekha Bhardwaj's rich voice?

She sings Mat Aana from the film here.

Up next, Vishal introduces us to a song he composed six-seven years ago for his film, Rangoon. At the last minute, the song was dropped.

The song Naa Hosh Chale was to be sung by Arijit Singh, but since he could not attend the event, Vishal sings it himself!

Indian Ocean's Rahul Ram takes the song Mann Na Rangave to the next level.

Ali Fazal and Wamiqa Gabbi enjoy the show.

Interestingly, this is Wamiqa's fourth film with Vishal, and she's very proud of that fact.

'Sometimes you meet people and instantly become friends with them because something clicks. It's the same with Vishal sir and me,' Wamiqa says in the Rediff interview.

Up next, Rahul Ram and Rekha Bhardwaj join hands to sing Bhujee Bhujee.

In the film, Rahul Ram sings it with Jyoti Nooran.

Can one song from Sunidhi ever be enough?

Of course not, and she gives everyone a double treat.

One of the reasons why Vishal cast Wamiqa was because of her vulnerability which her character needed.

Why Ali Fazal?

"I'm a fan of Ali!" exclaims Vishal.
