Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has said his hit song, Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast from Mohra, played in important part in taking shaping up his career. “In my life three things played a crucial part - Khiladi film, Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast song and Chura Ke Dil Mera song - these three things shaped up my career. This song gave a turning point to my career,” Akshay said.
The song that featured Akshay and Raveena Tandon became one of biggest chartbusters of the 1990s. It has been recreated for Abbas-Mustan’s directorial venture Machine, which marks debut of Abbas Burmawala’s son, Mustafa.
Speaking at the launch the new version of the song, Akshay said, “I did not do any rehearsals. We had the choreographers and we used to rehearsals on the spot. We shot the song in Filmmalaya studio and we had nine cameras shooting the song it was a big thing then.”

The actor scored his first big hit with Abbas-Mustan’s Khiladi and went on to do films like Ajnabee and Aitraaz with them. “Due to Abbas-Mustan I got my first hit film Khiladi and I am grateful to them. I would have done anything for them today.”
The new version stars Kiara Advani and the actress says she showed the song to the original star Raveena two days before the release. “I showed her the song two days back and she loved it. I wanted to get her blessings. It was surreal to do the song. I used to dance in front of mirror to this song and I got opportunity to do it (dance) in front of camera,” Kiara said.
