With the increasing trend of remixes and reprised versions, it’s not just the fans of the original songs who are upset but even some musicians. Recently, popular music composer, Vishal Dadlani took to his Twitter handle and shared a warning to all the new-gen musicians.
He wrote, “Warning: I WILL sue anyone making remixes of Vishal and Shekhar songs. I'll even move court against the films and musicians. After Saaki Saaki, I hear upcoming bas***disations include Dus Bahaane, Deedar De, Sajnaji Vaari Vaari, Desi Girl and more. Make you own songs, vultures!”
He further added “Do NOT remix Vishal and Shekhar sings without our permission, due credit and remuneration. I will come for you hard, legally. Especially the musician doing it. This will become very, very personal, even if you are a friend.”
Well, this is not the first time that a musician has taken a stance on the new versions of their old songs. A few days ago, famous singer and musician, Dr Zeus took to Twitter & expressed his disapproval to the new version of ‘Don’t Be Shy’ which features in forthcoming Bollywood film, Bala.
Later Badshah apologised and cleared the heavy air arising between them.
In recent times, many songs have been re-created by the artists. The list of these recreated songs include classic songs like ‘Saki Saki’, ‘Ek To Kam Zindagani’, ‘Dilbar’, ‘Humma Humma’ and ‘Tamma Tamma’.
