Mujhe ye video kisine bheja, is ladki ne mahan Austrian sangeetkar Mozart ki 40th Symphony G Minor ko Bhartiya Sargam mein bahut sundar tarah se gaaya hai. Main isko aashirwad deti hun ki ye ek acchi gaayika bane” (This video was sent to me by someone; the singer here is singing Mozart’s 40th Symphony G Minor in ‘Bharatiya Sargam’ and she is doing it beautifully. I bless her and pray that she becomes a great singer one day).

Samadipta Mukherjee was overjoyed when she realised that her performance had been viewed by the legendary singer.

Samadipta took to Twitter and wrote, “Now, the biggest news ever, of our lives — the real ‘dream come true’ moment — the most precious and priceless blessing, from the ‘Bharat Ratna’ herself… (Heartfelt thanks to Shri Mayuresh Satish Pai for bringing this huge news to us).”
