Masakali 2.0: AR Rahman takes a dig at rehash of his Delhi-6 song; Prasoon Joshi criticises T-Series

AR Rahman’s composition 'Masakali' from the 2009 film Delhi-6 was well-received by fans and critics alike. The song has now seen a new version that stars Tara Sutaria and Sidharth Malhotra.

In a cryptic tweet, the Oscar-winning music maestro wrote, “Enjoy the original version of Masakali.” Rahman, however, didn’t mention 'Masakali 2.0' in his tweet.

He posted a link of the original song and wrote, “No short cuts, properly commissioned, sleepless nights, writes and re-writes. Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming with the aim to produce music that can last generations.”

“A team of a director, a composer and a lyricist supported by actors, dance directors and a relentless film crew,” Rahman added.

The lyrics of the original song were penned by Prasoon Joshi. He tweeted to express his dissatisfaction over 'Masakali 2.0'.

The Delhi-6 song, featuring Mohit Chauhan's vocals, was originally picturised on Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan.

'Masakali 2.0', released via T-Series, has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi with vocals by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon. The song has clocked in over 14 million views since its release on Wednesday.
