The underlying message conveyed through the music video is that of inclusion and an appeal to the human race to end ‘hate. Shayan through his humble effort depicts inclusion and the supreme human emotion of love that can’t be defined within the confines of societal boundaries, but it is only LOVE that truly binds us together, especially in these trying times. The video is directed by Muni Agarwal while it is conceptualised by both Muni Agarwal and Shayan Italia.
