Thrilled with the achievement, Dhvani said, "The response 'Vaaste' received has been unprecedented. We are ecstatic that the song has even managed to make an impact on such a big level with 1 Billion views. This wouldn't have been possible without the support of Bhushan Kumar and T-Series. I also want to thank the entire team who made this song a success including Tanishk Bagchi, who did a fantastic job with the composition and Radhika Rao who directed the music video."
