25 years ago, megastar Akshay Kumar set screens on fire with Raveena Tandon as they danced in the rain to the chartbuster ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’ from the film Mohra. The song which was a super hit back then, remains a cult favourite even now.
Akshay Kumar is once again set to sizzle the screens, this time with his co-star Katrina Kaif as they recreate the iconic number for their upcoming film Sooryavanshi.
Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif who have previously starred in a string of box office hits such as Namastey London, Welcome, and De Dana Dan are once again paired opposite each other in the Rohit Shetty cop-drama.
After much speculation doing the rounds, Akshay Kumar himself took to Twitter to confirm the news. “I would’ve definitely been disappointed if any other actor would have recreated ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani, a song which has been synonymous with me & my career & I can’t thank Ratan Jain Ji enough.”
He further added “At times like these you realize, we may have come a long way but we also go back a long way”.
The original song that was composed by Viju Shah will be recreated by Tanishq Bagchi, who also created the redux version of Aankh Maarey. It will be choreographed by Farah Khan who has previously choreographed Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the superhit number ‘Sheila Ki Jawaani’.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, Sooryavanshi features Akshay Kumar playing the role of an Anti-Terrorist Squad officer and is due for a release on March 27th next year.
