Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty will team up on screen to dance together for the first time in Housefull 2.

The two actors were renowned for their footwork during the 1970s and 1980s, appearing in films such as Bobby and Disco Dancer respectively.

Housefull 2 producer Sajid Nadiadwala told Mumbai Mirror: "When Mithunda and Chintuji are both part of the same film, how can they not dance together?

"It would've been a classic case of missed opportunity if we had let the two of them go without sharing the dance floor."

Tees Maar Khan choreographer Farah Khan will be taking charge of the sequence featuring the two Bollywood veterans, Nadiadwala revealed.

He added that the song for the dance number is likely to feature lyrics from previous tracks made famous by Chakraborty and Kapoor to provide a "sense of continuity".

However, Nadiadwala also said: "I've been a fan of Mithunda and Chintiji's dancing for years. For me, the thrill and fun of watching them together lies in making them dance to a new song."

Co-star Akshay Kumar described Rishi Kapoor as a Bollywood "icon" after the two danced together in the generational drama Patiala House.

The comedy follow-up also star John Abraham, Asin Thottumkal and Zarine Khan.

Housefull 2 is scheduled for release on June 1 2012.
