Upon its launch 15 years in the past, Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani’s Dus bahane turned a celebration anthem of types. Now, the fast-paced quantity from Dus (2005) has been revisited by Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor for Baaghi 3. In an age the place Bollywood songs are consistently being reinvented, Dadlani has been on the forefront, criticising the development.
In a earlier interview with mid-day, he had referred to his slate of offended tweets when reiterating that he would not take calmly to filmmakers considering remixing their songs, asserting that the feat could take away from the physique of labor of artistes who had been “trying to create a legacy”. It therefore took us without warning when we learnt that the duo was keen to rehash their very own song. In a joint assertion, the duo says, “We’re doing whatever we can to save our song. It had already been shot to some chop-shop version, before we found out and objected. We insisted on creative approval, remuneration and primary and sole credit for our composition. Thankfully, everyone concerned has recognised and understood our right to protect our work, [and] our refusal to allow it to be released with anyone else’s name on it. Ahmed Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala have been supportive. Bhushan Kumar too had a long chat and promised to never re-use our music without our involvement. Since this had already been shot to a version we didn’t particularly care for, we are now trying to fix it so that a song that we all love, and one that has stood the passage of 16 years, isn’t reduced to merely another shoddy “remix”.”
Responding to solutions that Dadlani might also render his vocals to the revisited observe, the duo says, “We haven’t decided about that yet. We may keep the original vocals, because Shekhar and I are great friends with [original singers] KK and Shaan. We started together, and were part of this path-breaking track. But, since the tempo and verse have changed, we may need to replace the vocals too. Will decide in a day or two.”

Contrary to stories that urged that Disha Patani could be seen within the reprised model of Dus bahane, mid-day has learnt that the song has the movie’s main woman Shraddha Kapoor matching steps with Tiger Shroff. A supply from the artistic crew reveals that director Ahmed Khan shot the observe final December. “It was filmed across Serbia, Georgia, the Sambhar Salt Lake in Rajasthan, and Mumbai. Ahmed reimagined it as a stylised number that was shot against white backgrounds across the locales. He roped in couturier Aki Narula to design bright-coloured outfits for the leads.”
