Akshay Kumar recently announced he will be recreating the iconic song, Tip Tip Barsa Pani with Katrina Kaif for Rohit Shetty's Sooryavashi. The actor while annoucning the news shared a special tweet dedicated to the impact that song had on his career.
The actor shared a throwback picture featuring himself with Ratan Jain and wrote, "I would've definitely been disappointed if any other actor would've recreated Tip Tip Barsa Paani, a song which has been synonymous with me & my career & I can't thank Ratan Jain ji enough. At times like these you realize, we may have come a long way but we also go back a long way."
Tip Tip Barsa Pani was from the film Mohra' which also featured Naseeruddin Shah and Suniel Shetty in pivotal roles. The song, however, was picturized on Raveena and also focused on her, and Akshay's cold shoulder to the actress's credit in the song's success left many fans unhappy. One user said on twitter, "Akki we love you but for once don't forget to give the due credit to Raveena. The song was a hit not just because of you. Also I was not a huge fan of Raveena but Katrina can never recreate what she did," one user tweeted.
Another fan wrote, "Sir with due respect, no one remembers that you were also there in that song." "oh, you were the male lead in that song? thanks for letting me know that.. all I can remember about #TipTipBarsaPaani is Raveena, Yellow Saree and the rain.. which movie it was bdw??," an upset user tweeted.
"You were good. But no one can replace @TandonRaveena in a yellow saree," a female fan wrote.
Before Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi, Akshay will also be seen with Kareena Kapoor on screen for the film Good News alongside Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh
