"This song, which will be shot in Manali, starts in a playful manner and then goes on to salute the stylish romance that was a trademark of the 1970s," said director Vipul Shah in a press statement.
The song is composed by Pritam Chakraborty and the lyrics are "Nakhre nakhre nakhre, nakhre hain naatak re, nakhre nakhre nakhre tu peeche hi rakh re."
"The five couples whom Akshay and Aishwarya will pay a tribute to in the five-minute song will be Amitabh-Jaya, Dharmendra-Hema, Rishi-Neetu, Rajesh-Mumtaz and Shashi-Parveen," said a source.
"Since the film has a retro feel, Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya will be dressed just like these legendary couples did in their films. The unit is currently planning how to choreograph the song," added the source.
Another fact that has created a buzz is Akshay's dance numbers in the film that instantly remind the audience of John Travolta in the 1977 hit Saturday Night Fever.
