Ila Arun added, “I was stunned but couldn’t ask them why did you do that? So my reaction to this song is exactly what Alka Yagnik’s reaction is. I think this is an iconic song from Choli K P. What an amazing orchestration. Laxmikant -Pyarelal and the world have danced to this colorful tune for years. It is a beautiful song penned by Anand Bakshi and performed by Madhuri Dixit and Neena Gupta.”

She said, “I don’t want to create any controversy. The fact is that everyone is appreciating that I’m rocking, but I’m not rocking, so I’m shocked. Even the younger generation is calling me and telling me that my song has been remade. And Kareena Kapoor Khan is dancing to the number, but what can I do about it? All I can say is that I’m stumped. In my opinion, if you’re going to recreate, you should work with the original cast and keep them in the loop. And if you’re going to get any benefit If so, they should also be compensated.”
