Remaking the old hit songs and films is not the new concept for Bollywood industry. But only few of the remakes are better. Recently, Arjun Kapoor’s forthcoming film Mubarakan also features a recreated version of the 1980s song Hawa Hawa, originally sung by Pakistani pop artist, Hasan Jahangir.
The 32-year-old actor shared the news on Twitter with the link of the new song video, which also features Ileana D’Cruz. The song is sung by Mika Singh and Prakriti Kakar, it is a rip off of the old one. He captioned it “Lo phaela diya raita”.

As his caption says, ‘Loo Phela Dia Raita’, I would say that he literally did that by ruining our iconic and ever green song.
Soon after his tweet, Pakistani fans replied and slammed the team of Mubarakan for copying and remixing the song. They literally bashed the song and said it wasn’t worth it.
Have a look:
Was released in Pakistan in 1980s!!
Koi sharam hoti ha Koi haya hoti ha..

This song was sung in 1980’s by a Pakistani singer. You don’t feel any shame in copying Pakistani songs for your movies…

After being bashed from his fans on social media, Arjun Kapoor clarified in a statement saying, “The original song celebrates the spirit of his forthcoming film. We’ve chosen Hawa Hawa according to the situation. It’s a song we have all grown up dancing to and enjoying ourselves.”
If you still don’t agree with me, have a look at the original song of Hawa Hawa and do let us know what do you think about the remake made by team of Mubarakan.
