The music composer duo, who had worked with Farah in her previous outings Om Shanti Om and Tees Maar Khan, said it was a 'beautiful experience' to create the song. "In a world that shouts everything loudly, Manwa is a gentle breath of peace and love. Creating this song was a beautiful experience as working with Farah always is. Shah Rukh and Deepika have gone beyond our expectations in their performance," said Vishal-Shekhar, music directors the film.
Kamil said the song is very close to his heart.
"It reaffirms my belief that when simple words come straight from the heart they seep into the hearts effortlessly. I want to thank listeners for the love they have shown towards 'Manwa Laage' as they are the true judge of a creation," he added.
Produced by Shah Rukh's Red Chillies Entertainment, the film will release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on October 24.
