Ananya wrote the lyrics for her mother in 2015 and stated about the song, “This is a feel-good anthem, which I wrote taking inspiration from my mom. I penned it in 2015 and am finally being able to release it with women that I find to be very inspiring. The idea that society underlines our gender norms should not restrict us from working towards what we want to achieve. I truly believe that your gender doesn’t define you, and being yourself makes you unstoppable. This video showcases women who have overcome gender role expectations. I hope people can watch this and feel empowered, free and unstoppable.”
Sania Mirza also shared the song on her social media. 'Cause sometimes it needs to be said out loud WE ARE ‘UNSTOPPABLE', said Sania. 'Be inspired .. thank you Ananya Birla for making me a part of this amazing video.'
