Music composer Bankim says, “This song is not just only about Friendship, it’s also about those golden childhood and nostalgic days which all of us miss so badly. I still remember, while composing this song in November last year, the only thing which was running in my mind was, this has to be a song which everyone can relate to their own life. And finally, when I look back, I am really glad as a composer and singer that this song has been able to speak what I wanted to.”
