Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha will soon be seen grooving to the revamped version of Dharmendra's iconic song Rafta Rafta. Yes! The Dabangg co-stars will feature in the redux version along with the cast of Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir se. During a recent media interaction, Dharmendra revealed that the song Rafta Rafta from the 1973 film Kahani Kismat Ki, has been especially recreated for the film Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, reports news agency IANS. Apart from Salman and Sonakshi, the song will also feature veteran actress Rekha (who also starred in the original version), Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. Talking about his experience of filming the song, Dharmendra told IANS: "I think it is my karma that whenever I call anybody from the industry, they associate themselves with us. Whenever I need somebody, the entire industry is there for me."
