O Saki Saki (Hindi: ओ साक़ी साक़ी, Urdu: او ساقی ساقی) "Oh, Cub-bearer!" is a song played at the 2019 Bollywood action thriller "Batla House".

The video clip shows a dancer, Huma (Nora Fatehi doing an "item number") performing on a stage before a drinking all-masculine audience, while the movie protagonist, Sanjay Kumar (the actor John Abraham) is shown in somewhat unrelated fighting scenes.

This song was originally written by Dev Kohli, and composed by the duo Vishal-Shekhar for the 2004 Indian film "Musafir".

For "Batla House", both the lyrics and the music were re-worked by Tanishk Bagchi.

The playback singers are Neha Kakkar and Tulsi Kumar for the female parts, and B Praak for the male parts.
