Apart from the film, the audience also loved the recreated version of Dilbar, especially Nora Fatehi’s dance moves. Talking about how this song was chosen to be the part of the film, director Milap Zaveri told us, “It was Bhushan sir’s idea. When he came on board, he told me, ‘Milap, I will not tell you how to write dialogue and how to direct a film. But please trust me on music. Milap, I know music. He said Dilbar song was a rage when it came for the first time in a small film, but this generation hasn’t heard it and doesn’t know. I am fully confident that this song will again become a chartbuster.’ I couldn’t imagine it would become so historic the way it has become. I thank Bhushan sir, Nora Fatehi, who danced so well, Tanishk, Dhvani Bhanushali, who sung the song; she has done such a wonderful job. I think it is damn good.”
