The Penn Masala group took to Twitter and thanked Khan for his appreciation of the song. The song is produced by the Penn Masala group in collaboration with Jazz Hands, a social venture that teaches English to underprivileged children from municipal schools, through an unique drama and art based curriculum. The music video was shot before the pandemic broke out across the world and forced countries to go into lockdown. It features the singers who have lent their voice to the song. While Dev Shaurya Singhal has sung the Taare Zameen Par lyrics, Ajay Vasisht has sung the portion from Paradise.
Taare Zameen Par is a Bollywood hit film starring Amir Khan as Ram Shankar Nikumbh who teaches art at a boarding school. Here, he comes across Ishan Awasthi, played by Darsheel Safary, a student who isn't doing well in his studies and remains aloof in his class. Ram finds out that Ishan is dyslexic and not only helps him overcome the condition but also helps him discover his potential in art.
