With that in mind, the song was planned to be recorded in six official languages of the United Nations besides Bengali. Our aim is that people of other languages will also know about the sacrifices of our language martyrs and love for our Bengali language will be established: the love of pride, respect and glory. It is beyond the imagination for others that so many lives were sacrificed just for the sake of our mother language. Most of the countries are under lock down due to Covid-19. So, we had to limit the shooting in the studio. We hope that if all goes well, the audio and visual of the song will be released before 21st February.

I think Bangla songs and Bangla tunes will spread in the world with the new ideas of the youth. The song will touch everyone's heart with its wonderful lyrics and melody and Sajib's perfect music.
