In addition to the title song, the award-winning trio have also composed another track from the musical called 'Satyam Shivam Sundaram'. Shankar Mahadevan cites the close friendship between the trio and the director of the film, Swapna Waghmare-Joshi as incentive enough to compose for the film.

During the conception of the music, Joshi pitched the film to Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy in a nutshell. After which, the trio began working in the music with lyricist Mandar Cholakar. Mahadevan call the plot of the film "fantastic".
