Talking to a publication, Shefali Jariwala revealed that she did the song because she wanted to see herself on television. She said that she was in college when the opportunity came knocking at her door. But since she came from a family of academicians, her parents told her to focus on her studies. However, she wanted to do the song because she was getting paid for it. The actress revealed that she earned ₹7,000 for doing the song.

Shefali Jariwala went on to add that her father was not in favour of it. He was completely against it. So first, he took her mom into confidence and then, they both convinced her father. The song turned out to be such a hit that it was like a fairy-tale for her. It changed her life completely.

Several years after she became an overnight sensation with ‘Kaanta Laga’, Shefali Jariwala participated in the immensely popular dance reality show Nach Baliye 5 with her then boyfriend and now husband Parag Tyagi.
