Mumbai, April 9 (IANS) Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman and lyricist Prasoon Joshi don’t seem happy with a new recreated version of their 2009 gem, “Masakali”. The duo had created the song for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film “Delhi-6”, and on Thursday joined a growing band of social media users who have conveyed their disappointment over the new number.

Without mentioning the name of “Masakali 2.0”, Rahman tweeted: “No short cuts, properly commissioned, sleepless nights, writes and re-writes. Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming with the main aim to produce music that can last generations. A team of a Director, a Composer, and a Lyric supported by actors, dance directors and a relentless film crew.”

Lyricist Prasoon Joshi urged fans to stand for originality. “All songs written for #Delhi6 including #Masakali close to heart, sad to see when original creation of @arrahman@prasoonjoshi_ &singer @_MohitChauhan insensitively utilised,” Joshi wrote.

Taking a direct jibe at the music label T-Series, which has brought out the remix, the lyricist added: “Upto the conscience of @Tseries.. Hopefully the fans will stand for originality.”
