A popular classic song stirred with fresh peppy beats and topped with Nora Fatehi- a perfect recipe that makes for a catchy party number and that's exactly what the 'Batla House' song 'O Saki Saki' is.

The makers of John Abraham's upcoming crime-thriller on Monday released the first song from the film. 

The sizzling dance number is a remix version of Sanjay Dutt starrer song from film 'Musafir' that came out in 2004. The original song featured Dutt and Koena Mitra grooving to the beats. 

The revamped version of the song features Nora, a Canadian dancer who has managed to steal hearts with her insane dance movies in songs like 'Dilbar' and 'Kamariya'.

"It's finally out! setting your screens on fire once again with #OSakiSaki! Song out now!" tweeted Nora on Monday. 

Along with featuring Nora's performance, the video of the track also includes some bits and pieces of John's action sequence from the film.

While the song has already collected 1.4 million views on YouTube within 2 hours of its release, Koena Mitra, who starred in the original version, did not like the track.

Tweeting her disappointment over the song, Mitra asserted that the new version is "a mess".

"My song from Musafir Saaki Saaki" has been recreated. Sunidhi, Suhwinder, Vishal, Shekhar combination was outstanding. Didn't like the new version, it's a mess! This song had crashed many blockbusters! Why batlahouse, why? P. S: Nora is a stunner. Hope she saves our pride," she wrote.

Inspired by the real Batla House encounter that took place almost a decade ago on September 19, 2008, officially known as Operation Batla House, the film will see John portraying the role of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who spearheaded the encounter. 

The movie is scheduled to release on August 15 (Independence Day).
