Disco Deewane is a 1981 best-selling pop album by Nazia Hassan with Zoheb Hassan, her brother, it was produced by Biddu. It charted in fourteen countries worldwide and became the best-selling Asian pop record to-date.[1] It changed trends in music across South Asia, where it broke sales records, such as selling 100,000 records within a day of its release in Mumbai alone.[2] In South Asia, where the music industry was previously dominated by filmi soundtracks, Disco Deewaane was the first non-soundtrack album to become a major success across the region, paving the way for the emergence of independent Pakistani and Indian pop music scenes.[1][2] It was also the first South Asian pop album to top the charts in Brazil,[1] while also becoming a hit in Russia, South Africa, and Indonesia,[citation needed] and a success among the South Asian diaspora in regions such as the Canada, United Kingdom, United States, and West Indies.[3] Nazia Hassan was the first girl who introduced Pop music in Asia.

In 2012, a revamped version of the song was incorporated into the Indian film Student of the Year.[4]

Karan Johar used the song in his 2012 movie Student of the Year, after licensing the song from Sa Re Ga Ma. It is now being contested by Nazia's family as they claim that HMV doesn't own the album because it was financed by them in London.
