Sunidhi said: "I was initially very nervous when Asha Audio approached me to be a part of this album. But at this juncture all I can say is that singing Rabindra Sangeet has been a gratifying as well as exhilarating experience for me."
"I hope I have been able to do justice to the songs and not just my fans but people who love Rabindra Sangeet will enjoy listening to this album. The melody of Rabindra Sangeet is simply unmatched," she said.
