BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: On Wednesday, we told you how we didn’t appreciate the recreated version of Tanishk Bagchi’s Masakali 2.0. Even, the fans of the original song created by the maestro AR Rahman weren’t pleased at all. In fact, ever since the new version released, Masakali 2.0 starring Sidhartha Malhotra and Tara Sutaraia, the fans are constantly complaining why did Tanishk recreate such a cult song and then messed it up real bad. And on Wednesday night, the Oscar-winning music composer showed that he, too, wasn’t pleased with it. No, he give any interview but Rahman took to Twitter to share a post about the original, which said a lot about the recreated version.
He shared a post, and captioned it, “Enjoy the original #Masakali.” The post 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. A team of a Director, a Composer and a Lyricist supported by actors, dance directors and a relentless film crew.” – Lots of love and prayers A.R. Rahman.”
The music maestro also tagged director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who made the 2009 film Delhi 6, lyricist Prasoon Joshi and singer Mohit Chauhan in the post.
