Masakali 2.0: Sidharth Malhotra Finally Opens Up About The Backlash On The Song!

After a decade AR Rahman’s iconic song Masakali from Delhi 6 is in news after the remake starring Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria.

The makers named the music video Masakali 2.0. The sing has started facing a huge backlash not just by the netizen but the team behind making the original song has criticised it too.

Now Sidharth has finally talked about the controversy in a recent interview. The actor said that one cannot be blamed for the public’s disapproval. He also claimed that his last remarks like Kaala Chashmah and Ladki Beautiful Kar Gayi Chul went well with the audience.

“The song happened vis-a-vis a movie Marjaavaan as a promotional song at that time. It’s easy for people to say…I mean, obviously everyone’s to blame as a team but I have done remakes in the past whether it’s Kaala Chashma or Chul. They have all been recreations and have worked really well in the past. There was no conversation of whether I endorse it, not endorse it, whether they are good or bad,” Sidharthtold the daily in an interview.

The actor says that the criticism is valid and felt that the trend of remixes is slowing dying.

“I keep thinking it from an actor’s point of view. If somebody had to remake a film that I have been a part of and it’s not done with utmost taste or to someone’s satisfaction, of course, it can be annoying. So, I think in that sense yes, it’s completely valid. But, as I said I have had songs which have worked. My biggest hit, Kaala Chashma is a recreation, which is one of the biggest songs that we had. Disco Deewane (from debut film Student of the Year) was a remix as well and was a massive hit. But, I think the trend his dying though, to be honest. I don’t think the audience has the patience and they are not excited by the fact that we are not really creating new melodies. And as an audience, as a listener, I completely agree. As an actor as well, I would get far more excited about a brand new song,” Sidharth added.

The original Masakali was sung by Mohit Chauhan and the lyrics were by Prasoon Joshi.

While the new version is composed by Tanishk Bagchi, sung by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon.
