Confluence’15 was brought to an enthusiastic end by Mohit Chauhan’s performance. Despite the slight downpour, the singer came on stage and performed for the crowd. With songs like ‘Jo Bhi Main‘, ‘Nadaan Parindey‘, ‘Is this love?’, ‘Massakali‘ and many more, he managed to keep the crowd dancing and enjoying till the end. While on the stage, the singer told his audience about how he had completed his studies from Himachal Pradesh, but had always wondered what it feels like to graduate from Delhi University. His entire performance was accompanied with loud cheers and applaud from the audience. With his hour long performance, Confluence’15 was brought to a successful end.
