Adarsh Gupta, the head of Saregama India who was also at the event, said that although many people think that ghazal music is a dying art form, the sales of ghazal albums prove otherwise. There are plenty of people who still listen to and enjoy ghazals, which is why he knows that a collaboration of this sort which features ghazal giants would have no problem breaking record sales. He revealed that they wanted Sumeet, who is Anup’s protégée, because he would appeal to a younger demographic, thus making Destiny a winner across all age groups.
