Percussionist  Mayookh Bhaumik said the idea of "some Hindu boys getting together  and singing a Muslim form of music for a Christian holiday was quite interesting."

Keeping the spirits of secularism and festivities around Christmas high,  a rendition of the Christmas carol was also played at a Music Academy in Chennai.
