On the other side, living happily as it is mentioned after the end credits. The film’s actual story ends tragically but symbolizing their eternal love this song portrays it perfectly. On the other side, they live, roam around happily with no bounds matching the societal expectations.

Unlike this song, “Aahista” is meant to build up the tone for Climax and portraying the mental perspective of Qais (Avinash Tiwary) as he waits for too long in search of Laila (Tripti Dimri).
