Elaborating on the album, AR Rahman said, “'Raunaq' for me is a visual and musical space which I have been wanting to go on for a long time. After listening to Mr. Sibal’s lyrics, its simplicity took me to that place and since then I have been working on creating music keeping the lyrics in mind.”  While Mr. Kapil Sibal, added, “Sensitive, aesthetic, and intuitive, is what AR Rahman is. He is totally immersed in music. Every element of his being is involved in creation - as he aspires for perfection in everything he does. Rahman's genius gives life to my thoughts.”
