KiDi said: “Tulsi Kumar is a talent house and I was completely blown away when I first came across the entire idea of recreating ‘Touch It’. An Indian version in collaboration with Tulsi, ‘Shut Up’ got me excited to the core as the whole song captures flavors of India. It doesn’t only sound great, but the video has turned out to be a grand spectacle. Capturing the Indian essence in a true blue sense, I really hope the audience shower, immense love, on this version as they did to the previous one.”
‘Shut Up’ was already a social media sensation with countless Instagram reels tuned to its beats. The music video of the new version, directed by Adil Shaikh, has been shot in Kerala.

Made with so much of love and passion, we really hope this Indian version receives much love and adulation like the original one.”
