The song 'Jaane Jaa' is from the 1972 movie 'Jawani Diwani', starring Randhir Kapoor, Jaya Bachchan, Balraj Sahni, and Nirupa Roy in the lead. The original track was sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle.

Sooraj, who is delighted to be back on screen with ‘Jaane Jaa’, said: “I am extremely thrilled to be a part of this iconic track Jaane Jaa’s re-creation. The theme and the storyline of the music video are something that excited me the most to say yes instantly.”
“I am more inclined towards the action genre, and ‘Jaane Jaa’ gave me a space to explore that side of it. Hope the audience enjoys and loves this version of the musical masterpiece,” he said.
Talking about the song, Nimrit shared: “'Jaane Jaa', is such a cool take on the timeless 70s classic hit.! The music video is stylishly shot, and I got to try my hand in action. It’s for the first time that the audience will see me in a completely new look, and I am excited to see what the response will be like.”
DJ Chetas, who has re-produced the track ‘Jaane Jaa’ commented: "It has been a favourite of mine since my childhood and has always been on my setlist. When the opportunity presented itself, I was kicked to reimagine the cult classic for a new age urban audience.”
“I'm excited and nervous to see how people react to the track. Getting the vocals of Atif for the song and Asees complementing the same is just an explosive combination. The original song remains unparalleled, and this is my humble tribute to that,” he added.
Talking about her experience, singer Asees said: “There is always an added pressure in re-creating an iconic song such as Jaane Jaa and Chetas has wonderfully re-imagined it with his magic. I was nervous but at the same time I enjoyed recording this song and now I am just looking forward to people’s take on it. I hope we as a whole team have done justice to this much-celebrated masterpiece.”
