Iconic music composer duo Vishal-Shekhar took to their Twitter accounts recently to announce that they have distanced themselves from the Deedar De remix that features in Hansal Mehta’s ‘Chhalaang,’ starring Rajkummar Rao and Nushrratt Bharuccha.
Vishal tweeted, “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.”
A fellow fan suggested that the trend of remixing popular songs should be banned. The fan said, “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.” Vishal was quick to reply, “Please do!!!”
Shekhar, meanwhile, shared a tweet that read, “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.”
Earlier this year, Vishal said that he and Shekhar were forced to get involved in the remix of their popular composition Dus Bahaane featuring Shraddha Kapoor and Tiger Shroff, reports DNA India.
Speaking to the media, Vishal said, “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. 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’.”
