Shaan, who has also composed the song, told IANS: "The whole idea of creating this song is to create awareness towards air pollution. I wouldn't think I am a major influence of sorts, but I'm a creative person. I feel I have a social responsibility and so it stems from there. In fact, it's not like Bhamla Foundation asked me to do it. I feel that through music, you can say what you may not be able to say through words."

This is not the first time Shaan has worked with Swanand Kirkire. "This one is quite ironic because one of our biggest hits together was Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh and now we do Hawa Aane De, Shaan said, "It is true in the last 10 years, air pollution has gone up so high and there are some major players like unethical manufacturing, irresponsible behavior, traffic... things like that have gone up so much more. People need to go back to more organic living,"
