Prabhu Deva, who is directing the movie, said he is very "excited" to perform alongside Shahid, who in his opinion is one of Bollywood's most talented performers.
"I'm very excited about the song and Shahid and I are already rehearsing for it. It's a fun and peppy track," he said in a statement.
Shahid said he is "really looking forward to doing a full dance song with Prabhu sir. His style is very new for me, so it's a challenge. But I am loving it!"
The song, composed by Pritam, will be shot in a bar setting. Rehearsals for the number are in process.
Producer Viki Rajani says: "'Gandi baat' will be well remembered as we have two of the biggest and best dancers matching steps to a peppy track for the very first time."
The song is "high on tempo" keeping in mind the energy that Prabhu Deva and Shahid are capable of, Pritam said in a statement. He is "extremely confident that they will take 'Gandi baat' notches higher”.
The movie will hit screens Nov 29.
