When Varrier was asked about her take on the controversy, she told Times Now, "It is actually unnecessary. And unwanted. It is a Muslim traditional song and I don't think there is any kind of an element in the, in it which would, call it a insult, to anyone."

Earlier, the music director of the film, Shaan Rahman, came out strongly in defence of the song and said that there is nothing in the film that can hurt anyone's sentiments.
