Akshay Kumar has recreated the chart-busting song of the 90s, "Tip Tip Barsa Pani," with Katrina Kaif for Rohit Shetty directorial "Sooryavanshi"
Akshay-Raveena chemistry and Raveena Tandon's sensuous dance steps in a yellow saree in the original song from their 1994 film, "Mohra" is still intact in the audience's mind.

The music video has been choreographed by Farah Khan.
Originally sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, the song has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi.
