Malaika Arora on Chaiyya Chaiyya re-mix: “Don’t tamper with it”

Malaika Arora has spoken about her popular song ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’, to which she danced in, along with Shah Rukh Khan in the 1998 film ‘Dil Se’.

The actress said the song should “never” be recreated. She was cited in NDTV saying, “In today’s day and age there is a constant trend of remixes. There are a few songs that I think you should never touch. They are iconic. There must be five or 10 songs over the years that you can pull out. Chaiyya Chaiyya is one of them. Don’t tamper with it, just let the original be and that’s how it should be.”

Speaking of the song, Arora said, “When you play that song, you can’t help but get up and dance. It is an iconic song. When I shot the song, Geeta Kapur was assisting Farah Khan at that time. I used to study under Terence Lewis, Geeta assisted me on that dance. It was nice. We felt that let’s just go for it. The 46-year-old added, “I think some of the remixes are fantastic and go with today’s age and kids but yeah, there are certain things you should not tamper with like The Godfather or Mother India are iconic films. You should just let them be.”
