Hansal Mehta’s Chhalaang that stars Rajkummar Rao and Nushrratt Bharucha in lead roles which is also being touted as a Diwali 2020 release on globally renowned OTT digital streaming platform Amazon Prime Video, is set to win the hearts of the audiences and fans. But the film has been in the headlines yet again for the newly released remake song Deedaar De Remix of the cult song from the semi hit 2005 film Dus which had been originally composed by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravijiani and sung by the melody queen and versatile diva singer Sunidhi Chauhan almost 15 years back. When makers gave the original composers credit, now this new update has just come in that Vishal Shekhar want no credit of Chhalaang’s Deedaar De remix.
Earlier also their cult song Dus Bahane from movie Dus (2005), had been remade into Baaghi 3 with the name Dus Bahane 2.0 which was baldy trolled and mocked by the fans and netizens very brutally on the social media. Now, with another one of their songs being remade from the same film for Chhalaang (2020), the original composers Vishal Shekhar want no credit of Chhalaang’s Deedaar De Remix.
Vishal Shekhar deciding to come forward to clear the confusion, have finally broken their silence on the same to make it known officially to everyone through their social media handles that in no way are they both having any hand and participation in the Deedaar De Remix which is a recreation and remake of their cult timeless chartbuster song and have also wished the film Chhalaang all the best for their release.
One half of the nationally celebrated and exemplary duo Vishal, took to his twitter handle wrote a tweet which read, “We have been very kindly credited here, only because we composed the original #DeedaarDe in 2004. However, we haven’t done this ‘remix’. That said, best wishes to the film and team. Thanks for loving our music down the years. #VishalandShekhar @ShekharRavjiani”.
One of their ardent fans also commented on the tweet saying that remixes should be banned, The fan wrote, “As we are in the era of ban and boycotting things. Can we please ban ‘remix of 90’s song’ or remix of any song. #DeedarDe #Chhalaang,” to which the ace singer and composer Vishal replied, “Please do!!!”.
On the same moment, Shekhar Ravijiani, the other half of the blockbuster duo also took to his official Instagram handle and wrote and Instagram post which was more cryptic and indirect mockery intended in nature. His caption for the post read, “One day you won’t be checking on how many likes you got, how many views you got, how many new followers you got … none of these things will matter .. stay away from comparing.. stay away from the chase”.
New version of the song has been sung by the Bolna Mahi Bolna (Kapoor And Sons, 2016) fame mellifluous singer Asees Kaur and Dev Negi. The lyrics for the recreation have been penned by Panchhi Jalonvi.
