Koena Mitra and Sanjay Dutt’s song Saki Saki was remade for John Abraham’s film Batla House. The song features Nora Fatehi and Koena had called it a mess. Well, Dilbar girl Nora Fatehi is earning praise for her act in the Saki Saki remake for Batla House. However, Koena Mitra, who featured in the original song from Musafir was not too pleased with the recreated version and called it a ‘mess’. She had tweeted, “Didn’t like the new version, it’s a mess!
On the other hand, in a recent interview, Nora Fatehi was asked about her reaction on Koena’s statement. She said that she doesn’t think it’s critical as everyone is entitled to an opinion and one as to respect that. She said that at the end of the day, everyone is discussing music which is subjective. Speaking on featuring in the remix of the popular song, Nora said in the statement, “Getting the opportunity to be able to perform on a song like O Saki Saki, which is has been made on such an epic level by Tanishq, sung by Neha and Tulsi, is a dream. The way Tanishq has composed this song is out of this world and I knew visually I’ll have to match up. I learned to dance with fire fans for the first time within only 3 days, and I must say it was extremely challenging.”
Nora Fatehi Reacts to Koena Mitra
Talking in interview, she said, “I don’t think it’s really criticism, everyone’s entitled to an opinion and you have to respect that. At the end of the day we are discussing music, which is very subjective. Everyone will not like the same genre or style of music, right? Personally, I set a benchmark with “Dilbar” and I have to work towards surpassing it. After that, it’s for the audience to decide if they like you or not.”
While, talking on the preparation of song, Nora said that as the fire fans were heavy and dancing with fire is very risky. It was difficult to maneuver and dance with them effortlessly. She further said, “Thankfully, I had the drive to do it because I wanted the audience to see me add something new to my dance.”
Singer Tulsi Kumar, who sang the new version for Batla House, also echoed Nora Fatehi, “As for criticism, I would say that every person can have a view. A lot of people are giving it a lot of love, looking at the bright side. Some do not like it but that’s their personal choice.”
Earlier, after O Saki Saki redux dropped on the Internet, Koena tweeted, “My song from Musafir Saki Saki has been recreated. Sunidhi, Suhwinder, Vishal, Shekhar combination was outstanding. Didn’t like the new version, it’s a mess! This song had crashed many blockbusters! Why Batla House, why? PS: Nora is a stunner. Hope she saves our pride.”
