Bollywood is now repeating old classic songs, and the remixes usually disappoint fans. This time, Pakistani pop superstar Nazia Hassan hit song “Aap Jaisa Koi Mere Zindagi Main Aay” was remixed for the upcoming film An Action Hero that starring Ayushmann Khurrana and viewers have labeled the new music an “atrocity.” On Saturday, the updated version, sung by Altamash Faridi & Zahrah S Khan, was uploaded on YouTube. Malaika Arora, the Chaiyya Chaiyya dancer, also makes a reappearance. In the 1980 Bollywood film Qurbani, Nazia Hassan’s voice was first heard on Zeenat Aman & late stars Feroz Khan and Vinod Khanna.
Back in the day, Aap Jaisa Koi was a piece of key music in the disco trend. For admirers, the quest to generate the highly auto-tuned updated remixed version has felt “unnecessary” and “criminal.” Users on social media turned to Twitter. They rage about how the Indian music business should stop “ruining classic songs”. Instead, concentrate on making new music. The more recent version of Nazia Hassan song lost the charm and the vibe! They’ve completely ruined the music! The T-series must restrict!”
