Fanney Khan makers release new version of 'Mere Achhe Din Kab Ayenge' following backlash
Fanney Khan starring Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Bachchan, and Rajkummar Rao will release in theatres on 3 August.
However, the song landed in trouble when online users started using its first line to troll Narendra Modi's 'Achhe Din' slogan from the 2014 Lok Sabha election campaign, reported Mid-Day. Within barely ten days of the song dropping on the internet, the makers released a new version titled 'Mere Acche Din Ab Aaye Re' on 28 July.
"After the first version came out, a lot of people online used it to attack the Central Government and question Modi on his promise of achche din. The song was getting politicised needlessly. The producers also got a few calls from high places, after which they decided to release the new version," a source told Mid-Day, adding that the makers were contemplating pulling the song out of the film.
However, director Atul Manjrekar has said that 'Mere Acche Din Ab Aaye Re' was always a part of Fanney Khan and its story, but was to release after the film hit the theatres. He also said that a new video along with the song was released as the original version was unnecessarily taking a political colour.
Produced by T-series, Anil Kapoor Films & Communications Network, and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures, Fanney Khan is an official remake of Dominique Deruddere's Belgian comedy Everybody's Famous! It is scheduled for a 3 August release.
