Old Bollywood Songs in New Avatar Is the Flavour of the Season

Did you know that the recent blockbuster Judwaa 2 starring Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu, and Jacqueline Fernandez was a remake of the 1997 film Judwaa? The filmmakers did not stop at that, to ensure that the audience enjoys the film, they decided to revamp the two most popular songs from the 1997 film, Oonchi Hai Building 2.0 and Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12. Well, this isn't happening for the first time in Bollywood. And this is what we are going to talk about today. I have with me a list of such songs that have been revamped from super-hit old melodies. Although the lyrics of the two versions are the same, what has changed is the music of the songs. 

1. Laila Main Laila - Raees

Despite the fact that Sunny Leone wasn't a part of the film, she stole the spotlight with her extraordinary performance. The energetic number was a variation of the prominent Zeenat Aman's Laila O Laila from the film Qurbaani [1980]. 

2. The Humma Song - Ok Jaanu 

Humma Humma, a song from the 1995 film Bombay directed by Mani Ratnam, was sung by AR Rahman and still remains to be one of the most popular creations ever. The revamped version of this song was recently seen in the movie OK Jaanu that had the same energy.

3. Haseeno Ka Deewana - Kaabil

The new version of Haseeno Ka Deewana from the film Kaabil is the new version of the song from 1981 film Yaarana. In Yaarana, the song Sara Zamana Haseeno Ka Deewana featured Amitabh Bachchan.  

4. Tamma Tamma Again - Badrinath Ki Dulhania 

Portrayed by the popular on-screen couple Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, from Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Tamma Tamma is the revamped version of popular Madhuri Dixit song with the same name. The original song is from the 1990 film Thanedaar.

5.. Cheez Badi - Machine  

Starring actors Mustafa Burmawalla and Kiara Advani, the revamped version of the song in the film Machine, did complete justice with the original Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast the 1994 film Mohra. 

6. Bachna Ae Haseeno- Bachna Ae Haseeno

The original song featured Rishi Kapoor in the film Hum Kisise Kum Naheen while the remake featured Ranbir. 

7. Raat Akeli Hai - Ragini MMS 

The song Raat Akeli Hai by Asha Bhosle from the movie Jewel Thief was given a completely different twist in the movie Ragini MMS. 

8. Hawa Hawai - Shaitan 

Mr. India’s song Hawa Hawai picturised on Sridevi is a standout amongst the most famous Bollywood tunes. Suman Sridhar gave this song a quirky take in the film Shaitan. 

9. Main Hoon Don - Don (2006) 

While no one can really top Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan did a pretty snazzy job in Farhan Akhtar’s Don. The title track of the movie got a makeover which everybody seemed to love.

10. The Disco Song - SOTY

Nazia Hassan’s 1981 album Disco Deewane charted in fourteen countries worldwide and became the best-selling Asian pop record to-date. In 2012, a revamped version of the song was incorporated in the film Student of the Year. 

11. Khaike Paan Banaraswala - Don 

This song has a cult following – fun, bright and raucous – Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan really nailed it, and the viewers can’t deny. Right?  

12. Maahi Ve - Wajah Tum Ho 

The sexy pole dance presented by Malaika Arora in the 2002 film, Kaante, is still impressioned in our psyches. And just like that Maahi Ve from Wajah Tum Ho gave us an exceptionally advanced item number.That's all folks!I hope you liked the story.
