The song has the tune of Mahadevan’s 1990s hit composition ‘Breathless’ with the lyrics talking about India’s progress and various government schemes such as Jan Dhan Yojana, Startup India, and Mudra Yojana. After Shankar Mahadevan shared this song, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to praise his composition.
Lovely composition @Shankar_Live ! For many, it brings back memories of ‘Breathless.’
Like your song, 125 crore Indians are working nonstop for India’s progress! https://t.co/aMs1ZpurX4
