Recreating iconic songs a big task
Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who featured in the video of the recreated version of "Mungda" song, says that makers repackage iconic songs for the current generation. Her latest dance number "Mungda" for the film ‘Total Dhamaal’ has earned the wrath of the fans of the original number featuring Helen. "Mungda" was originally sung by Usha Mangeshkar with music by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The song has been recreated by singers Jyotica Tangri, Shaan and Subhro Ganguly and music director duo Gourov-Roshin.
Reacting to the criticism, Sonakshi said: "Even I like the original better and there is no comparison with that. When we recreate a song, that time we don't think that we will make a particular song better than the original one because when you are recreating an iconic song then there is no point making comparison with the recreated song." "We are only trying to repackage that and give it to the today's generation who might not listen to old songs.
It is releasing in April. "I am shooting for 'Mission Mangal', which will release in August. We are almost done with that. I am starting 'Dabangg 3' around the end of April." Asked about the amount of fun audiences should expect from ‘Dabangg 3’, Sonakshi said: "Double and triple of what you saw in first two parts."
