Asked to share the khaasiyat of S K Music Works ‘Abr-e-Karam’, music-video heroine Anjali Krishna shares, “Do you know I am still under the emotional hang-over of the video ever since we completed the shooting, It’s almost like an off-screen romantic break-up for me.. The Qawwali video with its meaningful lyrics is directed so beautifully by amazing Anshul-Sir. It’s all about a small-town simple innocent pure traditional love-romance with no urban synthetic vibes. There is a brief spontaneous kissing scene between both of us on the terrace where —now I won’t tell you any more—watch the video. In keeping with the title, my hero ( Akshit) and I bring clouds of kindness into each other’s lives, “ discloses Anjali who has also been shooting for Mahesh Bhatt and Vikram Bhatt’s underproduction movie ‘Khilone’ where she plays a positive role of an 18 year old smart hacker . “Also I am playing a younger version of Mugdha Veira Godse in web-series ‘Crime To Remember’ ,” reveals Anjali whose dream wish-list includes working someday with celeb-actors like Babil Khan, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Rawal and Ranveer Singh.
