After the clip went viral, Nafisa Ali told DNA that she and Lucky Ali were at a performance of young singers in Goa. "When it all came to an end, they said, Sir please sing us a song, and now Lucky said, Nafisa, you've put me in a spot. I said what did you think, you are their guru, you are the legend. If they want you to sing one song, I feel you show them how you sing. Then I just quickly put my camera on and recorded it," she told DNA.
