Chirantan Banerjee who is the music director of the film said “I have composed the songs according to the mood of the film. The film has a sensitive topic and hence the songs are made in that way. There are four songs in the film and the lyrics have been penned by Akash Chakraborty and me. We are so obsessed with gender, that we categorize everything according to it”. Working on the film has changed the mindset of the young musician towards the trans-genders. “Earlier I used to avoid them. But now after being associated with this film, I have understood how much lonely they are. I now understand them better” said the young musician.
