"'Masakali' is such a loved song from Delhi-6 and it’s so catchy despite being a mid tempo tune. I loved the original version and I think Bhushanji (Kumar) and Tanishk have re-imagined 'Masakali 2.0' beautifully. Tulsi and Sachet have given it a fun and sexy spin which I love! It’s amazing to have had yet another great song to work on," Sutaria said in a statement.

In a previous interview with Mumbai Mirror about the song, Malhotra had said that the music video's concept of two people stuck in a room was relevant when everyone is under lockdown to stop the spread of coronavirus . He said that they had intentionally showcased two people indoors in the video, who still managed to have some fun.
