Sonu has done great work in sending migrants’ from Mumbai home, during the outbreak. Apart from his star status, this is a big factor because of which we drew him in. His presence in the song is enthusing people. The famous actor Manoj Bajpai gives a refreshing start in the form of a prelude to the song.
