Mumbai: The song ‘Dum dum’ from Yash Raj Films` ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ was originally composed for Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’, says a source.

The song, sung by Himani Kapoor and Benny Dayal, was not used in ‘Rab Ne…’.

"Since the `Band Baaja Baaraat` team needed a similar track for the film, `Dum dum` was used. So in a way it was a very special musical gift to director Maneesh Sharma from Aditya Chopra," said the source.

’Band Baaja Baaraat’, featuring Anushka Sharma and newcomer Ranveer Singh, is releasing Dec 10.
