The song is written by Soma Taheri, composed by Tanim Hayat and its musical arrangement was done by Ejaza Farah. The music video for the track was directed by Shafika Nasreen Mimi.

Priyanka said, “The song ‘Megh Tumi’ was released just a few days ago. The response I have been receiving since its release has been very positive. Whoever listened to the track has praised it. This song is a product of many hardships and hard work by our team. I don’t know whether a classical song like this has been performed on such a huge scale before where the classical version has been brought together keeping the commercial value in mind.”

From Soma Taheri’s impeccable writing, Ejaz Farah’s music arrangement and Shafika Nasreen Mimi’s direction, Shamim’s amazing dance, Apurba’s tabla lahara and bol bani; all of us were so dedicated that the song is now being flooded with positive response and love from the fans. This is one of the best songs of my entire musical career. Kudos to Tanim Bhai, who took such a big risk and gave presented such an excellent song to the country. He himself played the Sarod part,” she added.
