In addition, they recorded a staggering eighteen versions of the song before settling on the final version. Shreyas also praised the amazing Arijit Singh for his outstanding work on the song.

In a recent interview with ShareChat, music director Shreyas Puranik discussed the song's origins and revealed that it was first written in September of last year for a different project, but it was never used.

He also mentioned that there were eighteen distinct musical arrangements of the song. Sandeep Vanga Reddy, the filmmaker, stated that he preferred the "original raw version" that was included in the film.


He said that Satranga was made in September last year for another project but couldn't be used there and then a few days later, he went to a Diwali celebration, and since Sandeep Reddy and Siddharth-Garima, the song's lyricist, were close friends, they were both there. We were just singing the song, and it suddenly caught Sandeep’s attention. It was only a week after I got a call from his office, and they told me that Sandeep wanted to use the song for his upcoming film. That was a happy moment for me!” he revealed.

Siddharth-Garima wrote the lyrics for Satranga, which features Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna in the video.
