The special music video has been shot by Sairat director Nagraj Manjule, while Ajay-Atul has composed the song.
“I was nervous in the studio,” says Kiran as reported by PTI. “I was made to sing the song on my husband’s diktat. I had fun working with Ajay-Atul and Nagraj. I was nervous in the studio but Ajay and Atul encouraged me to sing,” Kiran told reporters in Mumbai, said PTI. Ajay-Atul have composed for 2012 film Agneepath.

The filmmaker said it was her dream to work with the Sairat director Nagraj Manjule. Kiran confessed that it was a “dream-come-true” experience for her, and she only has Aamir to thank for it. “It was my dream to work with Nagraj. In an interview too I was asked is there any director I want to work with and I said Nagraj. My dream came true so I have to thank my husband,” Kiran told PTI.
On wife’s new role, the 51 year old Aamir Khan said: “I always felt Kiran sings really well. She sits in the balcony in evening and sings for me so I thought everyone should listen to her voice,” Aamir told PTI.
The song has been written by Guru Thakur and features snippets of rural Maharashtra along with Aamir, and other actors from the Marathi film industry.
