Akshay and Emraan aced the hook steps from the iconic song Main Khiladi Tu Anari in Tanishk Bagchi remix Main Khiladi
Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi bring the hit song Main Khiladi Tu Anari with a twist for their upcoming film Selfiee. Titled Main Khiladi, the remix also features Nushrratt Bharuccha and Diana Penty as they all recreate the iconic steps from the popular song from the 1994 film, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, which featured Saif Ali Khan with Akshay, the remix left fans feeling nostalgic.
The main Khiladi features Akshay, Emraan Hashmi, Nushrratt and Diana in flamboyant avatars. Almost a dance challenge, the song comes to life with their goofy expressions and smooth movements. Sung by Udit Narayan and Abhijeet Bhattacharya, with original lyrics by Maya Govind and music by Anu Malik, the original track is from the 1994 film of the same name. It featured Akshay alongside Saif. Main Khiladi is the latest music created by Tanishk Bagchi who is known for his Bollywood remixes. Sharing the new song, Akshay wrote, “Lights, camera, naacho (dance)! Main Khiladi Full Song Out Now. Selfie in theaters from February 24.”
Reacting to the song, a user wrote in the comments section of Akshay's Instagram Reels, "Imagine what will happen in the theater when this song gives you goosebumps." Another fan commented, "You never age." Someone else also said, "Akki's (Akshay's) expression and energy is irreplaceable, he just highlighted the performance that OG Khiladi is back."
Selfie is directed by Raj Mehta. It is the official Hindi remake of the Malayalam film Driving License which starred Prithviraj and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles. In the Hindi adaptation, Akshay plays the role of a superstar while Emraan, his biggest fan, appears as a police officer. The two are seen arguing after Akshay loses his driving license.
Akshay and Emraan end up challenging each other. While Akshay says he will get the license anyway, Emraan says he will have to get the document just like a "common man". It is said to be an action drama. It is also the first collaboration between Akshay and Emraan.
The film stars the late Aruna Bhatia, Hiroo Yash Johar, Supriya Menon, Karan Johar, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Apoorva Mehta and Listin Stephen. The theatrical release is scheduled for February 24, 2023.
