The song has been written, composed and sung by Jayashri for the Canadian composer Mychael Danna, who scored the music for "Life Of Pi", which has got total 11 nods at the Oscar nominations that were led by "Lincoln" with 12 nominations. Jayshri has been cited in the best music original song category.

Actor Siddharth: Bombay Jayshri at the Academy Awards! What an amazing honour for a great artist. India has Rahman to thank for all these honours.

Jayshri is one of the leading playback singers in the Tamil film industry and has worked closely with composers like Harris Jayaraj, Ilayaraja, A.R. Rahman and others. She has also voiced Hindi songs like "Zara zara" in "Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein" and "Chahoon bhi toh" in "Force".
