Anant Agarwal, Vice-Chairman, McDonald’s India – North and East, said, “Both Guru and Nikhita are super talented and gifted singers and we are excited to have them in McDonald’s i'm lovin’ it Live. Their track is a perfect reflection of the vibe that Gen Z craves for, and the episode promises to be an exciting journey for fans to get to know the artists on a more personal level. We're thrilled to bring together such talented artists to create a show that celebrates the universal language of music, and feel-good experiences for McDonald’s fans.” 

Randhawa, said, “The very first thought that struck my mind after hearing about this was - Let's do it! It was an instant yes for this exceptional collaboration, and I didn’t give it a second thought. I am extremely happy to be a part of this with my dear friend Nikhita. The track that we have worked on together - Illusion is a wonderful Punjabi post-house record, the first of its kind. So excited for the world to hear it!” 

Gandhi shared, ‘I’m elated to be working with Guru on this eclectic Punjabi track on i’m lovin’ it Live. As someone who enjoys singing English pop and jazz stuff apart from Bollywood, I was so excited to get on board with this record and fuse Guru’s classic banger Punjabi tunes to my western influences! He’s so much fun to be around and it’s weird that we only met after Naach Meri Rani on a flight back from LA. We finally got something to jam on together and i’m lovin’ it.”
