The song was trending within few hours of release. Taking to Instagram Arushi posted that the music video had crossed 100 million views on YouTube.

On her journey of making the video Arushi said, “It was really challenging for me as it was my first project and I hardly know the technical language. But my co-actors and the director were so corporative and helpful that I could achieve things in an easy way. The shoot was in Kashmir in the month of January, and it was hard to shoot in not-so-friendly weather. But all together the journey of Wafa Na Raas Aayee was delightful."

“Talent is not what gets appreciated through material kinds, but a power that enlightens the inner soul and radiates its vibrancy to the world around,” Arushi added.

Poetry is another rhythmic way to express one’s perceptions and sensitivities about the tangible world. “Dharti Swarg Banaungi” and “Kalam Mashal Ban Jaye” are the two books of poems that have been so far published.
