"First Bollywood song Of mine touches 100-million mark, the biggest anthem of the year. 'Teri mitti'. Thank you so much guys for this huge love and respect to this song and our team," B Praak tweeted.

Arko considered it to be a "proud moment".
"This most special song is a landmark in our careers and we cannot thank you enough for the utterly overwhelming emotional response to this one," Arko wrote on Twitter.
Talking about the making of the song, Arko earlier told IANS: "I have never composed such a song. This was my first time in the patriotic genre. I am glad I got an opportunity to pay tribute to the brave soldiers. To compose the song in the right way, we watched a lot of footage of the film. Generally, it does not happen but to bring out true emotions in the song, we had to first study the film."
