Recently, in an interview with India Today, Pankaj Tripathi remembered the late singer and called him one of his favourites. He also regretted not meeting him during the time of recording of the song. Tripathi said, "I so wanted to meet KK during the recording of the song. When the recording happened, I was out of town. So, when I saw the picture of KK with Gulzar Saab, the director Srijit Mukherji, and Shantanu da in the studio, I had decided the day Sherdil's trial screening happens, I will meet KK and have a conversation with him. I have been a huge fan of KK, he is one of my favourite singers. The song that he sang is a very soulful and wonderful track. However, my wish of meeting him remains unfulfilled."
