The track is a part of the music album which has been produced by Bhatia and has reached the first ballot in the World Music Album category. It is a diverse mix of artistes from around the country, read a statement.

"When I was informed about the acceptance for consideration for nomination, I was speechless and excited at the same time. It is a matter of great pride and honor for me to be a part of such a huge project that is going for the world's most prestigious award in music," Dhasmana said.

"I am really blessed to have shared the space with the likes of legendary Pandit Anindo Chatterjee and Anubrata Chatterjee on the song; along with many more veterans of the industry that include Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj. It has been a great learning experience for me and I thank Siddhant Bhatia to have bestowed his trust on me for this song," she added.
