The song begins with the lines, "Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra - I'm sorry spilt in two Andhra Pradesh and Telangana; Pondicherry, Lakshadweep, Yanam, Mahe, Karaikal are the union territories and the states of South India."
The video works as a guide talking about the famous identities of each state including food, politics and film. According to the team, they are paying tribute to the South of India channeling Billy Joel's Chartbuster "We Didn't Start the Fire".
