If you tagged 2017 as the year of Bollywood sequels, well it was also the year of recreated songs. Old songs getting a new packaging remained the flavour this entire year. While some rehashed tracks brought nostalgia, others were trashed for spoiling the original magic. While some supported it saying it introduced the current generation to our old classics, even if with a twist, others said the new trend has completely ruined the original item songs culture (Sheila Ki Jawani and Munni Badnam). But you like it or not, these revamped versions just couldn’t be missed. Every new film relied heavily upon these tracks as a promotional tool. They flooded the DJ parties, dance floors, even our personal playlists. So what if they were criticised for very little shelf life, the time they remained on the trending charts was enough to keep the buzz strong.
