Talking to The Indian Express, Cyrusi gave the credit of the recreated version to the maker Rahul Singh Datta. “The only person I thought could keep the innocence of the song intact was Rahul. He is a genius," the actor said.

“Piya Basanti changed my life forever. When we shot it 20 years ago, we had no clue what we were making. When it completed 20 years, I knew I had to do something. It (the video) feels like an old song in a new skin. This has been done only as a tribute (to the original).”
