Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor are getting a lot of appreciation for their new number Humma Humma in OK Jaanu. While the original song was composed by AR Rahman, it has been recreated by Tanishk and Badshah. The song is sung by Jubin Nautiyal and Tanishk, and features a rap from Badshah. Going by comments circulating online, there has been a mixed reaction to the new song.

And now, we hear Remo Fernandes, who sang the original number, isn’t too happy with the song. “There is nothing wrong in doing new versions of existing songs, as long as one brings something new to the table. It can be something plus, or at least something different. This version of Humma Humma, I am afraid, brings neither. It is but a pale, insipid version of the original. Vocally, instrumentally and arrangements-wise, it seems to be a hurried, uninspired job,” Remo Fernandez was quoted in a Mid-Day report.

Tanishk, however, says that the new song is a tribute to AR Rahman. “We are getting mixed reactions and a lot of people have also accepted it. When I was first approached for the song, I was excited because, as a kid, I would always dance to it. But, I had questioned the makers why we were remixing a beautiful track. Rahman sir has always been an inspiration, so for me, it was a chance to work with him (Rahman is the film composer). He suggested that Badshah and I work on the song since he knew we would bring a new flavour to it,” Tanishk was quoted in the report.

The original song featured Manisha Koirala and Arvind Swami. It gained huge popularity owing to its music, choreography and style.
