The makers of Saand Ki Aankh have released another song from the film, after sharing the track Udta Teetar earlier with the audience. The second song, titled Womaniya, pays a tribute to women. This vibrant song -- composed by Vishal Mishra and sung by Vishal Dadlani -- features sharpshooters Prakashi Tomar (played by Taapsee Pannu) and Chandro Tomar (played by Bhumi Pednekar) in their younger days. The song begins with Taapsee smoking hookah and Bhumi playing with marbles, talking about restrictions imposed by men. This is followed by the song, with the two ladies wearing sunglasses and ghagras, playing dhols and dancing freely.
Speaking about the new song, lyricist Raj Shekhar said in a statement, “The song is a celebration of womanhood in all its glory. It is the voice, which is mostly unheard in the male-dominated society. It is a tribute to the struggles of our grandmothers, mothers et aliae.”

Composer Vishal Mishra also shared how they knew “something special” had happened when he first composed Womaniya. “I could visualise the final result,” he said. “Now when I listen to the recorded track, I get goosebumps. I can’t wait for people to feel the energy, exuberance, and power of the song."
Sharing the song on her Twitter page, actress Taapsee Pannu wrote, “The song that gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it !
