The song was a big commercial hit in Lahore as well as the whole of Pakistan. It was one of the top songs on Pakistani Music Charts. The song was a turning point in Tafu's career which made him rise in Pakistani Music.

Music video:
The music video directed by Ejaz Bhutta, instead of Lahore, is shot in the city of London with the reason behind it being, to familiarize the West and the overseas Desis with the city of Lahore. Tafu (in some places alone where in other places with a gathering of British people) is seen dancing crazy on the streets of London, making funny movements with and around Britons. Many people including Britons and Sikhs are seen repeating the phrase "Lahore Lahore Aye" throughout the song. Tafu is also seen pointing some Lahori food in the song while singing about it. He tries to link the buildings and monuments of London with Lahore.
