Actor Zayed Khan got nostalgic listening to DJ Aqeel's remixed version of Kya dekhte ho, surat tumhari, which was originally picturised on his uncle, late actor Feroz Khan in 1980.

Zayed was at the launch of Aqeel's new remix album.

"This collaboration, especially of this old song of Feroz chacha's has been so close to our heart. We always used to sing this song as kids. It was such a big success," the 32-year-old said on  Friday.

The song featured in the movie Qurbani.

"I think I was six years old when this film released and that was a special time. So, to revisit that time in a new century and age is great," he added.

Zayed is quite sure that the song is quite going to be a hit with party goers.

"I think there is a new song now on the circuit which will make people groove everytime it is played. I think this going to be new year's hottest song," Zayed said.

Zayed was all praise for Aqeel, who is his brother-in-law. He believes the reason why the celebrity disc jockey is still so popular is because he is still young in his head.

"I just feel Aqeel is very passionate about his work, he is dedicated to his work and the nice thing about Aqeel is that he likes to hang out with young people and he has never grown old in his head. I think that is very good for music. He constantly updates himself.

"Aqeel really has a good sense of what the pulse of the audience is, what they want to hear," Zayed said.

Aqeel, who is married to Zayed's sister and jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali, is famous for his remix songs − "Nahin nahin", "Tu hai wahi" and "Shake it daddy".
