Nora Fatehi's 'O Saki Saki' is an average recreation, says Koena Mitra

New Delhi, News24 Bureau, July 16: Nora Fatehi starrer 'O Saki Saki' track from John Abraham's film 'Batla House' released on the online platform yesterday. Notably, 'O Saki Saki' is the reprised version and has been created by Tanishk Bagchi. It is crooned by Tulsi Kumar and Neha Kakar.

In 'O Saki Saki' track, Nora Fatehi can be seen showing off some of her never seen before sizzling avatar in the reprised version of 2004 film ‘Musafir. The original song featured Koena Mitra and Sanjay Dutt.

Talking about the original song, Koena said, ''Saki was a cult. I remember we had travelled to Dubai to promote Musafir, and I was thrilled to get that kind of response. People called it a winning horse. It was not just my work. Sanjay Dutt’s presence in it… director Sanjay Gupta shot it well, Bosco-Caesar choreographed it well. A lot of blood and sweat went in to shoot it. Vishal-Shekhar wonderfully composed the song with Sunidhi and Sukhwinder singing it.”

After watching Nora's complete song, Koena said, “Nora has got good skills, she’s a lovely dancer. What I didn’t understand is what they (makers) have done to our song. I honestly didn’t like the soundtrack, not even the visuals. They could have shot it in a better way, the way Sanjay had shot the video. It’s still fresh in our memory, it’s not yet an old song. It was too early to kill this song with an average song (recreation). I know my statement is going to be criticised by their team. I am not trying to attack them just because it’s my first film and hit. I feel that nowadays people should just stick to originals, and stop recreating cults. A lot of good songs are dying because of this… They should have approached Vishal-Shekhar and the original singers only.”
