In an interview the composers Ajay-Atul talked about the making of the song and were quoted as saying, “The song celebrates the richness of the Maratha regime…We wanted to create a song which not only had a traditional feel to it but can also be enjoyed by all kinds of audiences, regardless of their age and taste in music. So, keeping that in mind we have created Mard Maratha in such a way that it appeals to one and all…The energy of the song and the way Ashu sir has shot it, brings out the forgotten opulence of the Maratha regime and is a visual treat”
