Talking further about the response the track 'Vignaharta' received, Manjrekar said, "We released the song Vignaharta during the Ganpati season and it turned out to be a chartbuster. More than being catchy, the song is a hit because it has all the traditional elements of the Ganpati festival too which appeals to all."
