Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s forthcoming film Action Replayy promises to take the audience down memory lane.
Following news that one of Akshay’s dance numbers in the film will instantly remind the audience of John Travolta in the 1977 hit Saturday Night Fever.
The latest buzz around the film is a special song based on the romance between some of the most popular Bollywood jodis of the 1970s.
The song, which is yet to be shot at the end of this month in Manali, will have Akshay and Aishwarya teasing each other, vintage style.
A source said, “This is Akshay’s biggest release before Tees Maar Khan and director-producer Vipul Shah wants the film to touch everybody’s heart. The song is a tribute to the leading Bollywood couples of the 1970s and will highlight their romance.
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.”
The song, composed by Pritam, has lyrics which goes something like: “Nakhre nakhre nakhre, nakhre hain naatak re, nakhre nakhre nakhre tu peeche hi rakh re“. “Since the film has a retro feel, Akshay 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.
Vipul Shah confirmed the news and said, “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.”
