    Instead, it seems that the Dhunki (धुनकी) here is used for a cannon, as dhunakna (धुनकना) is used for booming a cannon.

    Update: Finally asked the lyricist Irshad Kamil himself and in his own words ‘Dhunki means TRANCE of love… Kind of Magical Spell,’ which would mean he has taken the meaning more or less from the traditional dhunki, the bow, as that goes something like a spell, in a periodic, circular way.
