Badshah and Bhoomi have also written the lyrics for the new version together. Talking about the song, Bhoomi said: "‘Genda phool' came to my notice and it poisoned me so much that I kept playing it on loop. I never imagined the Gujarati version would come to me. I was so much excited to be a part of the new version especially after I heard Badshah's ‘Baaki baatein' rap. I sing it during my shows too. I absolutely love his work, art and his writing skills." Rashami Desai Takes Up Genda Phool Dance Challenge; Her Killer Moves on the Jacqueline Fernandez Track Will Leave You Impressed (Watch Video)
