Vishal-Shekhar and Irshad Kamil have done a fabulous job and I am happy that people are also loving the picturisation of the song.”
Adding to the comments was lyricist Irshad Kamil, who penned the lyrics for the song. “It reaffirms my belief that when simple words come straight from the heart they seep into the hearts effortlessly. I want to thank listeners for the love they have shown towards ‘Manwa Laage’ as they are the true judge of a creation.”
