While Sachin released “Cricket Wali Beat” on his music app, 100MB, fans can now watch the music video on Youtube.
Although the music video was only released on 3rd April 2017. As of 4th April 2017, the video has over 300,000 views on YouTube.
Speaking of the collaboration to NDTV, Sonu says:
“He is a very good singer. We did not use pitch corrector on his voice as he was singing in the right sur (tone) and [despite being] the shy person that he is, he got extremely comfortable the moment I kind of increased the masti (fun) quotient while we were shooting the video.”
