Speaking on the song, Iman told India Blooms, "Aigiri Nandini is very special to me because it allowed me to come out of my secured zone of Rabindrasangeet or folk songs..."
"I wanted to come out of the zones of Rabindrasangeet, folk songs and playback singing to work on original Bengali songs though I have worked on them earlier," she added.
