In a press statement earlier, Bagga said that the song is his most “ambitious project to date.” He explained, “No one can deny that I’ve always been about highlighting all the incredible cultures that reside within our great country. I’ve been delivering Punjabi hits for a long time. This time, the focus is on the Balochi language and culture with all the musical sweetness of Punjabi.”
Aima, too shared her thoughts and said, “Fans may think of Washmallay as just another wedding number. Believe me, it’s not. Washmallay is about all cultural diversity. It’s a celebration of the various, arts, crafts and cultures. And I can’t wait for our fans to share their reactions to the song.”
The music video is directed by Adnan Qazi who feels honoured to have directed the song, “The different colours you are seeing in the video, they represent togetherness. The video carries a great message. I’m glad that I got to direct Washmallay.”
