Listen to Dilbar here: http://bit.ly/DilbarSong @zmilap @TSeries @SMJFilm @BajpayeeManoj @EmmayEntertain @nikkhiladvani #BhushanKumar @Norafatehi @iAmNehaKakkar @dhvanivinod @tanishkbagchi @Musicshabbir @ikkanomics"

The song is a recreated version of song Dilbar from 1999's film Sirf Tum. Dancing to the recreated number is Nora Fatehi, while John Abraham is fighting goons. The song is sung by Neha Kakkar, Dhvani Bhanushali, Ikka while the lyrics have been penned by Shabbir Ahmed.

Talking about the song with a modern Arabic theme, Dhvani said in a statement to IANS said: "It is such a great opportunity to sing for the recreated version of such an iconic song. While working on this song, I got a chance to work with great music artistes like Tanishk and Neha.

"I really hope people like 'Dilbar' and shower their love as they did for the original composition. Nora Fatehi is stunning in the video and the video is looking incredible. After 'Ishtehaar', which was a sad song, I am glad I got a chance to sing a completely different tune," he added. 

Nora talking about her experience of shooting for the Dilbar song in an interview with IANS said, "It was an amazing experience working with the team. They were very accommodating and were aware of my knowledge of dance. Nikhil really wanted me to add my own personal touch to the song and I was given the liberty to groove to the music to choreograph portions of the song." 

In the cop drama, John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee are playing pivotal roles.

Directed by Milap Zaveri, the movie is all set to hit the big screens on August 15. It is likely to clash with Akshay Kumar's 'Gold' and Kangana Ranaut's 'Manikarnika'.
