Musical notes
The ‘CID’ team recently recorded a song, which is going to be a part of one of the episodes of the show.

The team, consisting of ACP Pradyuman (Shivaji Satam), inspector Daya (Dayanand Shetty) and inspector Abhijeet (Aditya Srivastava), recorded the lullaby Aari Aaja Neendiya from the Mehmood-starrer Kunwara Baap. And guess who inspired them to record this song?

It was none other than the legendary Lata Mangeshkar! The team also took her blessings before the recording.

Everyone knows ACP Pradyuman and his boys are the best crime busters on TV. Now, let’s see how well they do in singing.
