"Dilbar" was originally picturised on Sushmita and Sanjay Kapoor in the film Sirf Tum.
Nora, who had rehearsed for 10 days before the shoot, said: "Doing a remake of an iconic song is always nerve racking because you never know if you can actually do justice to it. Sushmita Sen was iconic in the song and I hope I match up to her."
The modern version of the song has an Arabic theme. It features Nora doing belly dancing and sharing screen space with actor John Abraham.
She says the take on the song is very "unique and different".
However, John will not be shaking a leg in the number.
"When I heard the powerful script of Satyameva Jayate I knew that we had most of the ingredients that are required for an out and out commercial masaledaar film. With the addition of 'Dilbar', one of the most catchy songs of the 1990s, and the way it has been stunningly picturised... I am certain we have a winner," John said in a statement.
The film's producer Nikkhil Advani said Nora's belly dance on this track is going to be "genre defining".
