In the film, Shahid Kapoor’s character i.e. Haider Mir directly blames his mother (Tabu) and his uncle (KK Menon) for the murder of his father. Talking about the song, singer Sukhwinder Singh told The Indian Express, “The song tells the story of the film as it used to be in V Shantaram’s films. You can say that this song is an example of Indian opera. So when Vishal was telling me about this song, I realized how the expressions have been put in it which I was doing for the first time in my career. Normally I sing for fun without thinking anything but this song was challenging for me. This song became a big hit on the screen.
‘Shocked to see Shahid’
When Sukhivander saw this song on screen, sharing his experience, he said, ‘First of all I want to thank Vishal who gave me a chance to sing this song. He put his trust in me. The final result of the song was absolutely ‘Qayamat’ and when I saw it on the big screen, I was in awe. Seeing Shahid’s performance, I asked him- Hey you dance that you fly?’
