'We are thrilled to introduce to the world the music of 'Bal Ganesh'. We are certain that the album is sure to be appreciated by all age groups.

'It is after three decades that Shamir has brought together the melodious Mangeshkar sisters, Asha and Usha, this time to sing the song 'Nanha Munna Bal Ganesh'. With 'Bal Ganesh', we want to take the Indian 3D animation technology to a different level,' Maroo said.
