When the remake of 'Dilbar' was released last year, it was an instant hit among the masses. While Nora Fatehi was hailed for her commendable moves, Tabishq Bagchi was appreciated for not ruining its old charm. So it was no brainer for the makers of Batla House to incorporate a similar idea in their next big project. This time the idea was to recreate Sanjay Dutt and Koena Mitra's iconic number 'Saki Saki' from Musafir. After Saaho, Batla House and Mission Mangal on August 15, Here Is the List of Remaining Big Box Office Clashes of 2019.
Koena had earlier taken to her Twitter account to announce her displeasure for this remake. She believed the remake was a mess and the Batla House makers shouldn't have ruined the original song. But did her words hurt Nora, whose killer moves are the only saving grace of this new number? Well, not really. In her recent interaction with Mumbai Mirror, when the Dilbar girl was asked about Koena's comments, she said, "I don’t think it’s really a 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 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.” Batla House Song O Saki Saki: Nora Fatehi Sizzles in a Watered-Down Remake – Watch Video.
