Having collaborated with Badshah on many blockbusters earlier, Astha shared "Both Badshah bhai and I have been extremely humbled by the love Paani Paani is receiving from all over.

They knew the words, they knew the steps, they hummed the music drop, all of it. I dream of the day Indian Songs will top Global charts, Paani Paani seems to be on a strong performance track and I can't wait for it to hit the highest position it can."
