Talking about the music of the film and the song recorded by him, Suresh Raina says, “Cricket will always remain my passion and while playing, music has always given me company in between. While listening to music, singing became a hobby and I have been interested in doing something in singing when I am free. My wife Priyanka is from Meerut and the producer of this movie Shoeb Ahmed is a family friend of mine, a few days back he discussed his upcoming movie Meeruthiya Gangsters and insisted that I sing a song for it. Priyanka further convinced me to utilize this opportunity for trying my hand in singing. On Sunday we recorded this melodious track and I really enjoyed it. I hope listeners and fans will appreciate my effort as they have all this while supported me whenever I am playing the game for my country”.
Shoeb Ahmed said
“Suresh Raina’s song has become a highlight of our film and the fact he sang so well shows he has many other talents apart from being a great cricketer. We have been friends for many years and it’s a measure of his warm personality that he has sung for my film.”
