    Usha Uthup has recently rendered a number for music composer Dharan. the composer was composing for the bilingual Band Baaja Baarat being made in Tamil and Telugu The composer composed a track which has some jazzy chords and a freaky number so he wanted Ushaji and Benny dayal to do justice and he is finally convinced that the song has come out very well.
