Rapper Badshah has reacted to the recurring debate bordering the remix of Masakali. Badshah, in the past has actually remixed old classics, as well as has had his own tunes remixed without his authorization.
Speaking With Mumbai Mirror, the rapper claimed that all of it comes down to the target market response. “Comparisons are unavoidable. I enjoyed the Aankh Marey remix greater than the original. My 2015 tune Wakhra Boodle was just recently remixed for a film without my understanding. It worked, however, I’m still asked to play my variation wherever I go.” He included that AR Rahman praised his version of Humma Humma. “We went to an event, and he called me from the various other ends of the area, to claim that he liked my remixed version of Humma Humma,” Badshah claimed.
However, Rahman has minced no words in rejecting Masakali 2.0. In a current social network article, the composer composed, “No routes, properly appointed, sleepless evenings, writes as well as re-writes. Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming to produce songs that can last generations. A team of a Director, an Author, and a Lyricist supported by actors, dancing directors, as well as a relentless movie staff.”
The Masakali remix has been made up by Tanishk Bagchi. Still, filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who routed Delhi-6, the film in which the initial track showed up, has stated that one can not blame Bagchi. “He has done it, yet I won’t hang him for that. Someone thought about doing it, funded it, shot it, some individuals acted in it,” he claimed.
At the same time, Badshah went to the center of his dispute lately, when he was accused of using Ratan Kahar’s lyrics in the track Genda Phool. He claimed, “If it were a case of plagiarism, we would certainly be encountering the repercussions now. The initial song has been recreated several times in the past, also in Bengali movies, and also, Ratan ji has actually never been attributed. It’s sad because aristocracies are an artiste’s only income source. I wish to share the nobility of this track with him.”
