"'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.
