The teaser for the upcoming Main Khiladi is finally out. The latest song from "Selfiee" features Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi as the lead actors. It's interesting that it's a remake of the hit title song, which starred Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. The teaser is a 16-second-long video, which shows the OG Khiladi and Emraan shaking their legs together.

The original singers, Udit Narayan and Abhijeet Bhattacharya, have sung the recreated version. The original composition is by Anu Malik, and Tanishk Bagchi brought a new twist to Selfiee. The song also features the leading ladies, Nushrat Bharuccha and Diana Penty.


Driving Licence, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and directed by Jean Paul Lal, was a big hit in Malayalam in 2019. Selfiee is the Hindi version of the Malayalam film.

At the trailer launch, the Malayalam heartthrob spoke about co-producing Selfiee, his first in Hindi. Prithviraj stated, "As someone who was very closely associated with developing the original material, I kind of know from where it began, how it took the form of Driving Licence and how it became Selfiee today."

The actor and filmmaker also said, "I would give full credit to our director Raj for seeing the original and thinking that this film is possible from that source of material. That takes a lot of talent, especially to be able to tell a story differently but still keep the core elements of it and still make you feel what the original made you feel."

Aruna Bhatia, Karan Johar, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Supriya Menon, Listin Stephen, and Raj Mehta are producing the upcoming comedy-drama Selfiee through their respective production companies, Dharma Productions, Prithviraj Productions, Magic Frames, and Cape of Good Films. Akshay Kumar, Emraan Hashmi, Nushrat Bharuccha, and Diana Penty play the leads, respectively, in the movie. The movie, which is a remake of the 2019 Malayalam movie Driving Licence, is set to come out on February 24, 2023, all over the world.
