Composer Anup Rubens, who is busy these days with a handful of films, is happy over the impressive response for his latest song 'Idhi Sneham'. The Friendship Song from Vishnu Manchu's 'Ginna' was released on July 24 and has clocked millions of views since then.
Anup's piano-playing set to Bhaskarabhatla's lovely lyrics has made the song the listener's latest favourite. The song has been played millions of times across music streaming apps.
Sung by Ariaana and Viviana, the daughters of Vishnu, the melody is feel-good and warm. Thanks to his skilled composition, their singing talent has been elevated.
