These days, remixing old classics have become a trend in Bollywood. Every other film is rehashing an old classic track into a new version with heavy instrumentation. Many top music directors like Amit Trivedi and Pritam opposed the idea of remixing trend in Bollywood.
Now, popular rap artist and singer Baba Sehgal has also lashed out on this dangerous trend. Recently, he said, “It’s time Bollywood stop recreating/remixing old classic film soundtracks… the quality, instrumentation and the output in doing so are sad and pathetic…”
“Please tap the right talent as we have it in abundance here and STOP destroying & ruining the original. It’s become more of COPYWOOD than Bollywood (sic),” he further added. As many artists are condemning the idea of remixing the songs, we have to see whether the makers consider this request or not.
