Elli, who is looking forward to be part of this song, said, “I love the song and adore Urmila Matondkar in it. I got really excited when I was called to Tips office for this song. It’s an epic one and I hope I can match Urmila's energy and enigma in the remake."

According to Adil, the song will be desi and with a dash of goth. “Elli will be surrounded by a lot of back-up dancers, just like in the original,” he added.

Kumar Taurani of Tips has the original rights of the song. Taurani said, "Chamma Chamma is an iconic song and we are glad that its recreation, just like the originals, has received an outstanding and positive response! We are happy that we got an opportunity through Fraud Saiyaan to re-introduce the song to the newer generation and give this experience to the loyal music listeners as well."

Produced by Disha Prakash Jha and Kanishk Gangwal, the film is directed by Sourabh Shrivastava starring Arshad Warsi, Saurabh Shukla and Sara Loren. It will hit the silver screens on January 18, 2019.
