In Sajid Khan's Housefull, lead actors Riteish Deshmukh, Lara Dutta, Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone carry out their nocturnal romance while trying to avoid Lara Dutta's Gujarati father Batuk Patel (Boman Irani), who's sleep-walking all around the house.

Replete with all the retro cliches that Sajid Khan mocked on his TV show in the 1990s, pelvic thrusts found their pride of place in this song.
