On April 8 T-series had released their new song 'Masakali 2.0' featuring Tara Sutaria and Sidharth Malhotra.

The song is a remake (or it is safe to say a remix) of the original song 'Masakali' from the 2009 Rakyesh Om Prakash film 'Delhi-6'.


This famous song was composed by AR Rahman and sung by the amazing Mohit Chauhan featured Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan. The original was one of the most popular songs of its time and the song has aged very well among the fans.

The latest version is composed by Tanishk Bagchi which is sung by Sachet Tandon and Tulsi Kumar.

When the new version dropped, there was a disappointment among everyone that it does not match the original anywhere and many felt that it ruined the essence of the song.

It got mixed reactions, while few liked the pairing of Sid and Tara, many despised the lyrics and the tune.

But what came as an unexpected turn was AR Rahman taking to twitter and showing his dissappointment over the song.

Everyone seemed surprised as the legend is usually silent and speaks only when he is asked something, but him coming out and posting this shows the major unhappiness with the song. 

Earlier when one of his songs 'Ishwar Allah' was remade he expressed his disenchantment by saying that 'They bastardised the song'.

His other iconic numbers 'Humma Humma' and 'Urvashi' have also been remixed in the past.

Clearly the legend is unhappy with the remix, remake trend and like any true artist believes in originality.
