Old is gold is not just a saying anymore but is the new Bollywood Mantra.
Yes, did you know that the blockbuster Judwaa 2 which starred Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu, and Jacqueline Fernandez, was a remake of the 1997 film Judwaa? Filmmakers did not stop at that.
To ensure that the audience enjoys the film, the filmmakers even remade the two most popular songs from the 1997 film, Oonchi Hai Building 2.0 and Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12.
Shocked? Well, this isn't happening for the first time in Bollywood. And this is what we are going to talk about today. So how about we take a look at such songs that are remade versions of super-hit old melodies.
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 .
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 remake version of this song was recently seen in the movie OK Jaanu that had the same energy.
As luck would have it, Jacqueline Fernandez made an entry into Bollywood and in no time she became a sensational actor and dancer. In her next film, she will step into the shoes of iconic Madhuri Dixit.
Yes, you read that right. Jacqueline recently shared the first look and teaser of her upcoming song Ek Do Teen from the film Baaghi 2. The song is a reprised version of Madhuri's popular song from 1988 film Tezaab.
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.
Portrayed by the popular on-screen couple Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, from Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Tamma Tamma is the remake of popular Madhuri Dixit song with the same name. The original song is from the 1990 film Thanedaar.
Starring actors Mustafa Burmawalla and Kiara Advani, the redo version of the song in the film Machine, did complete justice with the original Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast the 1994 film Mohra.
The original song featured Rishi Kapoor in the film Hum Kisise Kum Naheen while the remake featured Ranbir.
The song Raat Akeli Hai by Asha Bhosle from the movie Jewel Thief was given a completely different twist in the movie Ragini MMS.
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.
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.
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 redo version of the song was incorporated in the film Student of the Year.
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?
The sexy pole dance presented by Malaika Arora in the 2002 film, Kaante, still has an impression in our psyches. And just like that Maahi Ve from Wajah Tum Ho gave us an exceptionally advanced item number.
