The shooting of this video was held at Drum Stick Lagoon Resort and its surrounding area in Igatpuri, near Nashik. 'Tujha majha breakup' fame Meera Joshi is the co-star of Mlind in this video. The video produced by Inner Voice Productions Pvt Ltd, has been directed by Nilesh Kunjir. It has been receiving good response on different television channels including 9 x, Zakas and Myboli, and digital mediums including Facebook and YouTube. 'Tila Sanga Kuni', has a bit of nostalgia and lot of romance. It offers an audio as well as visual feast. Viewers can also have a glimpse of the video online. Meera has worked in eight musical videos in the past, but this is her first romantic video and has a special place in her heart. Meera says, “The audience will definitely enjoy the song.
