After releasing a successful trailer of Student Of The Year 2, the makers of the film released its first song last week which is a recreation of the popular 70s hit song Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, starring actors Randhir Kapoor and Jaya Bachchan in it and from the film Jawani Diwani. As soon as the song got released on YouTube, it has been attracting a lot of praises from the audiences who are loving the peppy beats and modern feel of the song that stars Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Pandey in it. While a large portion of the audiences are raving about the song, there still exists some people who are criticising the makers for remaking the old hit song and ruining the original one for them.
However, apart from the audiences what matters more is what the original Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani actor Randhir Kapoor has to say about the remake. In an interview with Mid Day, Randhir Kapoor came out in full support of The Jawani Song and called it a nice tune. “I feel there is no harm in recreating songs. The original track came out four decades ago. Many youngsters were not aware of the song, but today, everyone knows it because of the remix. [After the redux version released], they all went back and searched for the original song on the Internet. I haven’t seen the song, but I have heard it; it has a nice tune. Also, Karan has officially bought the rights of the number. So, his intentions are honest,” he as quoted as saying.
Unlike many people, Randhir Kapoor is happy to see so many popular old songs being recreated and feels that it’s a good way to bring those forgotten songs back to life and make them popular amongst youngsters. “It’s good to make yesteryear songs more accessible to our youth. I see many youngsters dancing to these remixes, which means they like them. I don’t have any issues with remakes,” he concluded.
