Hansal Mehta slams ‘Masakali 2.0’: It is an insult to the original creator | Hindi Movie News


Filmmaker Hansal Mehta has joined the bandwagon and expressed his displeasure for the remix of AR Rahman’s ‘Masakali’. While the original one belonged to Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Delhi 6’ Abhishek Bachchan-Sonam Kapoor, the newer version stars Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria. “Yes. I am reacting to the awful, ear shattering #Masakali version. But check its YouTube views in 48 hrs. Then see how DJs blast it at events. And how people groove to the godawful version,” Hansal Mehta had shared on Twitter.

He went on to point out that if the audience rejects remixes then the makers may stop with recreation. Hansal Mehta wrote, “This ‘recreation’ of old songs can stop if the public rejects them. The numbers on YouTube for godawful versions of old songs are huge and hence music companies keep producing them. Stop viewing the videos. Stop listening to the songs. Stop playing them at events. They will stop.”

Reacting to the controversy, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had told BT, “There has been a lot of talk about our music and its golden era of the 1950s and 60s. We swear by those songs and we still sing them and say, ‘Aaj kal waise gaane nahi bante.’ So, it’s also about giving people quality songs. There should be certain originality and integrity about your work.”

The original track from the 2009 film was penned by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Mohit Chauhan.
