He told The Times of India: "In Singh is Kinng, I just did a few lines with Snoop Dogg. But this is technically my singing debut. Frankly, you have to credit my director Neeraj and music composer MM Kreem for this song.

"Kreem sahab made me sit at the harmonium for six to seven hours and urged me to give it a try. He said, 'Akshay do not bother about the sur and taal. You just sing with sincerity. I will do the rest'. I blindly followed his advice and I would like to dedicate this song as a Valentine Day's gift to all lovers."

Director Neeraj Pandey added: "Akshay took an instant liking to the song. We decided to shoot a video with him and wanted him to lend his voice to the track. He isn't a trained singer but he was so well-versed that by the time we recorded the song, it was very easy."

Kumar has described Special 26 as a "mind-action" film because of its psychological nature.

The star plays the role of a conman who masterminds a daylight robbery with a gang of 26 expert jewel thieves.
