Rosemeyer has decided to revamp an old Hindi song, 'Jia Ho Jia Kuch Bol Do' from the 1961 film, Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai starring Dev Anand and Asha Parekh. The old classic was originally sung by Mohd Rafi.

The new version of the song is composed by Nisschal Zaveri and is sung by Jyotika Tangri; it will also have bits from the original Rafi version as well.

Speaking about how this song's idea came into being, Rosemeyer says, "During the shoot, everyone was humming the song because the title sounds similar to the song. So I approached the music company, with the idea of adapting the original song into a party track."

The song is picturised on Koechlin and Chadha. "It’s one grand picnic, under the sun, on the beach and in a forest. It’s in sync with the film’s vibe and reflects the growing camaraderie between the two Jias though Kalki and Richa are not completely in character. They will be dancing in slow motion and the viewer will want to get up and join them," adds Rosemeyer.
The film revolves around two women, both named Jia (played by Chadha and Koechlin) who embark upon a life-changing journey when they decide to go for a holiday. Through the journey, they become best of friends.
Along with the two leading ladies, the film also stars actor Arslan Goni as the male lead. Jia Aur Jia is produced by Mirza N Askari and is presented by Blue Fox Motion pictures Pvt Ltd.
