Dancing diva Malaika Arora shot to fame with the song Chaiyya chaiyya back in 1998. She feels that though there is a trend of remixes these days, the AR Rahman composition is one of those numbers that simply shouldn’t be touched. The song Chaiyya chaiyya, sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi, for the Mani Rathnam film Dil Se is an all-time favourite dance number of most people. Its video featured Malaika and superstar Shah Rukh Khan matching steps atop a train, and continues to be popular.

Malaika recently danced to the number in an episode of the new dance reality show, India’s Best Dancer. Asked about it, Malaika told IANS: “When you play that song, you can’t help but get up and dance. It is an iconic song. When I shot the song, Geeta Kapur was assisting Farah Khan at that time. I used to study under Terence Lewis, Geeta assisted me on that dance. It was nice. We felt that let’s just go for it.”
