Churning remakes of old hit songs is not a new concept in Bollywood movies. From Humma Humma to Tamma Tamma and Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast, a lot of rehashed versions of 90s tracks sprung up in the recent past but failed to strike a chord with music listeners. With a new remix in almost every movie set for release, it has become the latest fad in the Bollywood brigade. To add to the list, Arjun Kapoor’s forthcoming film Mubarakan will also feature a recreated version of the 1980s song Hawa Hawa, originally sung by Pakistani pop artiste, Hasan Jahangir.

The 32-year-old actor shared the news with his fans on Twitter with the link of the new song video, which also features Ileana D’Cruz. Sung by Mika Singh and Prakriti Kakar, it is a rip off of the old one. Captioning it “Lo phaela diya raita,” the Half Girlfriend actor posted the link.

Take a look at his tweet here.

As soon as he posted it on Twitter, a lot of Pakistani users targeted the actor and slammed the team of Mubarakan for “copying” and “remixing” the iconic song which was first released across the border in 1980s. From calling them “copy cats” to saying that “it wasn’t worth it”, they bashed the song.

Take a look at some reactions on the social media networking site here.

During the launch of the song, Kapoor had said, “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.”

              i have not been my self although i have been in several relationship i have not seen who is as good as Ronnie, so ever since i have been thinking about him, so i had to tell my friend about how i feel for Ronnie that i wish if i could have him back to my arms, so my friend told me that she was reading a love review on the internet when she saw how somebody commented on how she got her lover back with the help of a spell caster, A man named Prophet Abulele with his email: prophetabulelehealingtemple So that was how i told her to show me the site were she read the reviews so that was how she showed me and i saw so many reviews about this great man how he helped a lot of people without wasting any time. Immediately i collected his contact and called him and told him what i want, he just laughed over it and told me not to worry that he will come back to me, so that was how i waited to see what will happen, so surprisingly i got a call from Ronnie. it was like this is a dream

                  For several years the porkis are copying bollywood but their small mind is reflected in the trolls. One song is attempted that a porki has composed and trolls. Now my personal opinion is the song is not an icon but ordinary and bollywood is trying to make it extraordinary by its Midas touch. Except terrorism the porkis do not display a professional at ude. But I must acknowledge they are professional terrorists and excellent teachers of terrorism.
