When it comes to rain songs, Akshay Kumar-Raveena Tandon's iconic song, 'Tip Tip Barsa Paani' from Mohra is the first name that comes to your mind. The sizzling chemistry between Akshay and a yellow sari-clad Raveena is hard to match up to and one must say, rains never looked more sexy than this before.
A few days ago, reports surfaced in that the popular rain song would be recreated for 'Sooryavanshi', Akshay's upcoming film with Rohit Shetty. Well folks, turns out the news is true. Akshay recently took to Twitter to confirm the same and shared how would have been "disappointed" if any other actor was given the opportunity to recreate it.

At times like these you realize,we may have come a long way but we also go back a long way."
