Nupur Sanon came out with the cover version of ‘Filhaal’ a few days before the lockdown was announced. When asked about the reactions she received to the song, she said, “I wasn’t expecting much out of it, and I did it because it is something I am passionate about. I have been making covers even before Kriti got into Bollywood. I am trained in Hindustani classical and I was doing it for my passion in general. I also wanted to do it because this is my own song. So I was like what is better than doing a female version of your own song. I was so surprised with all the messages I received. I did not expect it at all.”

When asked what Akshay Kumar had to say about the cover, Nupur said that she received a very sweet message from him appreciating the song. “He sent me a sweet message which said, ‘I loved it Nupur. And the best part is you stylised it in a different way but you kept the emotions intact. Nowhere did I feel that the emotions were compromised for style.’ He was really happy with the female version.”

The song composed by B Praak will be having a second edition. The announcement of the same was made a few weeks before the lockdown. When Nupur was asked if she had heard the song, she said that she has not. “No, I haven’t heard the song. But I have heard that it is something bigger only because I know these people (B Praak and Jaani) and Akshay sir won’t be satisfied till the time it is something of Filhaal’s level or more. I am very eager to listen to it,” she said.
