Shankar Mahadevan says, “We’ve done a scratch recording for it. It’s a great song to dance to.”
Earlier, Himesh Reshammiya also borrowed a line from the song for his 2011 film, Damadamm! Shankar says that remaking a popular song immediately draws attention. “There are so many old melodies that we are bringing back, such as ‘Apni toh jaise taise’ (Housefull). It adds flavour to the film.”
Produced by Dar Motion Pictures, the film is about RAW agents who are sent to bring Dawood Ibrahim from Pakistan to India.
