Not letting anyone feel left out, she went right up to the front row urging those sitting to get up and groove. “Aap sab baithe hue bilkul ache nahi lag rahe... Jo maza live mein hai, wo phones mein nahi. Dilli needs to jump with me,” she said and went on to confess her love for the Capital: “I’m not from Delhi but have so much love for this place that all my band members are from here.”

From Subhanallah (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, 2013) to Chaleya (Jawan, 2023), Rao sung numerous love ballads and then shifted gears for the sake of singles in the house. She said, “If you don’t have Valentine’s dates, don’t worry because we are in the mood for a ghazal.” Imagine what next? Rao sang Besharam Rang (Pathaan, 2023) in ghazal-style!
