The music video, which lasts 1 minute and 18 seconds, features images of the Badshahi Mosque, dancing horses, and Lahore’s pehelwans, among other things, to emphasise the finest of what Lahore has to offer. However, that song, which included Atif Aslam, Faisal Kapadia, Asrar, and Jimmy Khan on vocals, as well as Aamina Sheikh, Adnan Siddiqui, and Adnan Malik, fell a bit flat to the audience. Anan Malik explained the concept of the newer version of the song as,
You have to love social media because when I put out a call to action on Facebook, I managed to track them down. When Zoe and I met them, we couldn’t tell who was more starstruck — us or them! Zoe and Adnan Saeed, who produced the audio, mentioned that we should incorporate qawalli into the new anthem and so we decided to merge the two.”
He also added,
Working with them was a great experience. It’s a home-grown talent, which their mother has nurtured very well. Without any formal training, both sisters are extremely in tune.”
