The song Haa Bhai Haa was sampled from Iranian song Havar Havar by Kourosh Yaghmaei which has also inspired the Hindi songs Jawan Jawan Ishq Jawan Hai and Aaya Aaya from Govinda's Billoo Badshah and Sunny Deol's Aag Ka Gola respectively. The song Don't Worry Be Happy drew inspiration from Bobby McFerrin's song Don't Worry Be Happy.
