Javed Akhtar blasts makers of Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif’s ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’

Bollywood, as an industry, is going through a phase where filmmakers are going berserk over rehashing and remaking old songs. In recent times, we have seen films like ‘Simmba’, ‘Total Dhamaal’ and others rehash old songs. Now, veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar has voiced his displeasure over this practice.

Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Sooryavanshi’ will have the remake version of ‘Mohra’s ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’ song. The classic song had Raveena Tandon at her sensual best.

Javed Akhtar, in interaction with The Asian Age, was not impressed and said, “This has to stop. And I’ve taken legal recourse in the past. I had sent legal notices to the people responsible for doing this to the song ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi’ from the film ‘Papa Kehte Hai.”

The ‘Sholay’ writer further added, “Unfortunately, Anand Bakshi sahib (who wrote ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’) is not around anymore to protest against this kind of desecration. Today, they change the lyrics of well-known songs. What is to stop them from changing the lyrics of ‘Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon’, the patriotic classic that has the nation weeping? It may make us weep in another way altogether if, God forbid, they decide that poet Pradeep’s immortal lines need updating and revalidation. This is sheer vandalism.”

Coming back to ‘Sooryavanshi’, this cop drama is being helmed by Rohit Shetty. And this flick is releasing on March 27, 2020.
