Acharya had been working on the dance moves on the track for a while but the producers choosiness about the music had set him back by a good two weeks.

Insiders say the song that features Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Jimmy Sheirgill was to be initially composed by music duo Sajid-Wajid. While Acharya rehearsed the moves for a week, the producers apparently struck the song out and handed the task to Himesh Reshammiya instead.

A source says, “The producers were not happy with the song. Ganesh spent another week working on Himesh’s version but the makers rejected that too. Finally, the track was handed over to the British band Rhythm Dhol Bass (RDB).”

It was only after RDB did their deed that the producers gave their stamp of approval to the song. Bhushan Kumar, whose label is the music partner for the film, says, “It was the producer’s call. It has nothing to with me. The producers wanted something different.” Co-producer Tigmanshu Dhulia remained unavailable for comment.
