Abhi yeh waqt nikal jaye and sahi waqt pe sab sahi ho jayega (may this time pass, everything will be fine), I just pray for that.

I’m like ‘I’m sorry’ like I probably want to, maybe not. But then I was so passionate about my rap, and I would record ‘Back to Start’ and shoot the video. So I was like I took a chance, I’m like “Back to Start” should be out. So probably next year or let’s see how it goes.
