Malaika said, “It’s good that people rejected that song because it turned out to be beneficial for me. I am very happy. I believe in kismat. I think it was meant to happen. I got to work with the best, right from Farah Khan to Shah Rukh Khan, to Mani Ratnam to AR Rahman to Santosh Siwan. I had the opportunity to work with the best in the business. Even after 25 years, if you start to think of a song that created a huge impact on the big screen, everybody says that Chaiyya Chaiyya is one of those songs. Even today, people sing and dance on that song. I still get love for that song. I owe a lot to that song. So, I am very happy that I got to be a part of such a blockbuster song.”
