Viva girls are evoking nostalgia among netizens and their comeback video is unmissable! Music producer Anushka Manchanda took to her Instagram to share the good news with fans and also dropped a wonderful rendition of their chart-buster 'Jaago Zara'.

Anushka took to her Instagram to share the video of the song and even penned down a heartfelt post. She wrote, "For the people who have never heard this song before, Jago Zara is the sign of the times, and yet, it is timeless.

For the downtrodden, the broken, the supressed, the marginalised, sidelined, the outnumbered

For the ones that are asleep, unconscious, blinded, confused, hypnotised

For the ones that need strength, love, power, support..... Jago Zara! Savera Ho Gaya!"

Jago Zara..my most favourite song of VIVA, an all girl band I was part of, my first step into the music industry. Coming from rock n roll, the two years I spent with this indipop band were sometimes confusing, sometimes exhilirating, and most times just downright crazy! I was a baby when I went to the auditions as a joke, a way to get out of staying home studying. I had absolutely no idea that this would be the start of an absolutely new life direction. Today I can't imagine a life without my work and passion for music, and for this I am ever grateful. The universe guides, and you flow ✨ Its been so many years and so much has happened, and still today, people come up to me, to us all, to tell us what Viva meant to them. This video is for you, for every time you have thought of us, sent us messages, sung our songs and reached out to us to tell us how you feel ♥️ Thank you for this everlasting love, this crazy bond you have built with us that has lasted so many years. We feel you, we give you love right back ♥️ . . For the people who have never heard this song before, Jago Zara is the sign of the times, and yet, it is timeless. For the downtrodden, the broken, the supressed, the marginalised, sidelined, the outnumbered For the ones that are asleep, unconscious, blinded, confused, hypnotised For the ones that need strength, love, power, support.....
