Bollywood’s remake trend has gone a bit too far, and fans have been irked by the constant remakes releasing for some time now. Apart from that, some Bollywood celebrities can’t stand the idea of their songs and films being remade for no reason and at times without consent. On Wednesday evening, A.R. Rahman slammed Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria's recently released song, Masakali 2.0.
The song has definitely made a lot of noise, but for all the wrong reasons. Now, Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel has come out in support of Rahman and without any hesitation, she called the remake a 'cheap atrocious copy'.
While the remake of Rahman's original song 'Masakali' from Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor starrer 'Delhi 6' was released yesterday with Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria in the lead, it has been facing a negative response on social media.
Undeniably, Rahman had put his soul in composing the song and without holding himself he slammed the makers in a classy way.
Rangoli has now come out in his support and termed the Masakali 2.0 'cheap atrocious copy' in her latest tweet. She wrote, "Nothing worse for an artist when his/her genius work violently taken from them turned in to a cheap atrocious copy and sold for dimwits low IQ audience, art must cultivate the audience to enjoy fine work not ruin fine work to suit tacky gawar audience..."

Meanwhile, several other celebs including filmmaker of Delhi 6 Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has taken to his Twitter handle to criticize the reprised version of 'Masakali 2.0'. He wrote, "#Masakali #Delhi6 Created with love & passion an iconic song that has to be preserved. Beware of the re- mix it will damage your eardrums."
For the universe, the original song was composed by music maestro A R Rahman and crooned by Mohit Chauhan while the lyrics were penned by Prasoon Joshi. The latest version of the song has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi and crooned by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon.
