However, they conveyed their finest wishes to the staff.

Taking to Twitter, Vishal wrote, “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.” Shekhar also posted the identical message from his account.

When a fan prompt that the pattern of remixing well-liked songs needs to be banned, Vishal agreed. “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,” the fan wrote, to which the composer replied, “Please do!!!”

Shekhar, in the meantime, shared a cryptic tweet: “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.”

 

While the indigenous Deedar De was sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, the remix has been sung by Asees Kaur and Dev Negi. The track also has all-new lyrics by Panchhi Jalonvi.

Earlier this yr, Vishal stated that he and Shekhar had been compelled to get entangled within the remix of their well-liked composition Dus Bahaane, as they didn’t need the track to be decreased to ‘merely another shoddy remix’. The Dus Bahaane remix featured in Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Baaghi 3.

“We’re doing whatever we can to save our song. It had already been shot to some chop-shop version, before we found out and objected,” he had advised Mid-Day, including, “Since this had already been shot to a version we didn’t particularly care for, we are now trying to fix it so that a song that we all love, and one that has stood the passage of 16 years, isn’t reduced to merely another shoddy ‘remix’.”
