Jhoom Jhoomta Tu (Hindi: झूम झूमता तू, Urdu: جھوم جھومتا تُو) "You Rock and Sway", is a song played in the 2012 Bollywood action thriller "Players".

The song has a male version, sung by Arijit Singh, and a female version, sung by Ritu Pathak.

The male version is also titled "Jhoom Jhoomta Hoon Main", and both versions are sometimes known as "Kyun Duriyan", due to the common first words of the lyrics.

The movie, which is a heist film inspired by the 2003 US film "The Italian Job", describes the adventures of a band of thieves to steal a big gold shipment.

At some point in the movie, one of the band's members, Spider (played by Neil Nitin Mukesh) betrays the rest and runs away with the booty.
Another of the band members, Charlie (Abishek Bachchan), convinces Naina (Sonam Kapoor ) the daughter of a former associate, to infiltrate Spider's house and locate the treasure with the help of electronic devices.

The song is played while Naina performs a seductive dance in front of Spider, in order to distract him, while Charlie and the rest of the band members surveil the dance remotely via a hidden camera.

The song's lyrics were written Ashish Pandit and the music was composed by Pritam.
