The song's music video was filmed in Pakistani capital, Islamabad. In most scenes of the video, the members of the band are riding bikes or driving a jeep around the city. In one scene, the group is performing on the slope of a small hill. At the end, all of the band members appear in a rather simplistic studio and the video ends after a few seconds.
The authorship of the song is disputed. However, a central role was played by is its producer Shoaib Mansoor who is given most of the credit for the production. The artwork of this album was designed by Jaffer Hussain.Lead singer of Vital Signs, Junaid Jamshed tells that the band and the producer were working on a love song but all efforts seemed to be unsuccessful. At last, Shoaib Mansoor abandoned the idea of love song and decided to work on a patriotic one, and as a result Dil Dil Pakistan was created.
In a 2003 BBC World Service international poll of popular songs, Dil Dil Pakistan came third. The song "Dil Dil Hindustan" in the 1990 Indian film Yaadon ke Mausam was inspired by and copied from Dil Dil Pakistan.
