The duo said, “the pressure for ‘Chak De! India’ was crazy. At one point, we were ready to give up the film because we were unable to crack the title track.” Sulaiman revealed that 6-7 versions were rejected before they gave a green signal to Chak De! India’s title track. He recalled going to Jaideep Sahani and asking him to write something so that they can get into the “zone”, who eventually wrote the first few lines of the song.

Later, Salim added that on Aditya Chopra’s suggestion, they took reference from the popular song Jumma Chumma, and created the framework. Salim also revealed that they recorded the song the same day with singer Sukhwinder Singh. And, later, Jaideep developed the lyrics for the song based on the recording of those couple of lines.

As the conversation progressed further, Salim also spoke about the song titled ‘Maula Mere’. He asserted that they shot the song a week before the film’s theatrical release. Interestingly, he added that the song was earlier created for the music album of Shreyas Talpade starrer Dor. However, since the makers didn’t like it, they used it in Chak De! India.
