The song is not created with a modern touch which it has been given a jazzy feel. To this she said, “This is my zone kind of a song. I love jazz and I like to jazz up old melodies because I see those old songs somewhere blend into jazz beautifully and it comes to me very naturally.”

On asking Shibani about collaborating with Old is Gold for the song, she said “I was planning on to do a music video and the rights of this song are with Saregama.

The music to this song was live and organic. Shibani loved working with the team and she took a moment to credit every person involved in creating this song.

“Raghav Vaghav the arranger of the music, Pawan – based in NewYork, is a highly trained jazz saxophone player, Lennart Altgenung is on the piano and he belongs from The Big Band Theory in Austria. Hey all have done a great job with the song,” she ended.
