Revealing that he initially had plans to release another track as the first song from the album, Ayan continued, "To be honest, I always imagined that we would launch a song which was just about SHIVA, as the first song of Brahmastra. But there was SO much warmth for the Kesariya Teaser, that we decided we had to put it out first (or, everyone would kill us)! And now, I can’t imagine it being any other way… because Kesariya is about Shiva and ISHA… and their Love, which, is the Core of Brahmastra!".
Concluding his post, he requested everyone to enjoy the song in all the five languages as he wrote, "Hope you guys enjoy the song when it drops tomorrow, enjoy its beauty and simplicity, and that it adds some joy to your lives !! P.S.: Do look out for the Song in all our South Languages … Each version has a distinct identity and we’ve done our best on each of them!".
