Popular Bollywood music composer Anu Malik’s daughter Anmoll Mallik is all set to unveil her debut single titled Lamhein on EMI Records India.
She says it’s about some once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Anmoll is the first signing of the music label and her single is a recreation of British band Coldplay’s hit number ‘Paradise’, said a statement.

Anmoll said, “Lamhein relates the tale of a girl’s rise to fame and how it affects those around her. Sometimes you don’t realise how precious a moment is until it becomes a distant memory. Lamhein is about desperately seeking those moments that may never come back.”
Anu is the music director of the song and Manoj Mantoshri of Galliyaan fame has penned the lyrics.
The song is accompanied by a music video that stars Anmoll and Mohit Marwah, nephew of actor Anil Kapoor whose previous work includes his role in the film Fugly.
EMI Records India is an initiative between Universal Music India and acclaimed film director Mohit Suri, who has also directed the music video for the single.
Mohit, who makes his non-film directorial debut with the video, said he is “delighted” with how it has shaped up.

“I almost feel the same nervous energy which I felt during my first film release considering this is my first attempt at a non-film music video. I sincerely hope that the audience enjoys the song and the video as much as we have enjoyed making it,” he said.
Speaking on the occasion, Devraj Sanyal, managing director and CEO, Universal Music Group South Asia, said: “We are proud to announce our first release under EMI Records India – a natural talent that comes from a distinguished musical legacy!”
“It was a unanimous decision between us and Mohit Suri to launch Anmoll Mallik as the first artiste under the label. She’s such a brilliant talent and an absolute pleasure to work with in studio”.
Lamhein will be available across all digital partners exclusively on EMI Records India on 2 October.
