Big B can be seen dressed in a black sweatshirt and matching coloured pants coupled with a pair of clouts in the video of the song. His swag is unmatchable and unmissable in the rap song, and is definitely a treat for his fans that get to see Big B in this new avatar.

The makers of 'Badla' had earlier dropped an emotional track titled 'Kyun Rabba' from the film. The song hints at Taapsee being in an extramarital affair and how she deals with the guilt.
