The Bollywood Actor Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria’s starrer Masakali 2.0 released on 7th April 2020, and received mixed reactions on social media. The original Masakali song from Delhi 6 was composed by AR Rahman, penned by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Mohit Chauhan. And just like netizens, they were definitely not pleased with the remake.
Taking to Twitter, the Oscar award-winning composer AR Rehman took a dig at Masakali 2.0 and shared a note which read, “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.
Furthermore, Prasoon Joshi also was clearly happy with the remake as he tweeted, “All songs written for #Delhi6 including #Masakali close to heart, sad to see when the original creation of @AR Rehman, @prasoonjoshi_ & singer @_MohitChauhan insensitively utilized. Up to the conscience of @Tseries. Hopefully the fans will stand for originality. @RakeyshOmMehra.”
Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria will be seen romancing each other for the second time after Milap Zaveri’s Bollywood movie Marjaavaan. Sachet Tandon and Tulsi Kumar have provided vocals to Masakali 2.0. Tanishk Bagchi has written some additional lyrics for the song.
