Bollywood is big on remixing and rehashing old classics but what happens when the original creators of the art don't approve of your work?
Lata Mangeshkar has voiced her anguish because Tanishk Bagchi has created a new version of Mangeshkar’s 'Chalte Chalte' from Pakeezah (1972), which was composed by Ghulam Mohammed, for Nitin Kakkar’s upcoming Mitron.
The new version has been sung by singer Atif Aslam.
As reported by Scroll, Mangeshkar said she does not want to hear the remixed version: “This trend of remixing old songs saddens me. Where is the creativity in simply lifting acknowledged, beloved classics and shuffling the notes around?”
Mangeshkar also spoke out against the changes made to old songs, arguing that this was being don't without the consent of the original composers and lyricists: "Nobody has the right to tamper with the creativity of these great composers and lyricists.”
