Singer-composer Vishal Dadlani says recreations of old songs
is heart-breaking and needs to be stopped.
In a tweet, filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh had expressed his sadness over a new version of a song originally by late singer-actor Kishore Kumar.
"I just heard a new version of an old Kishore Kumar song. Really ya! There should be a law against these things!"
On this, Dadlani commented: "Agreed. Heart-breaking, the lack of respect with which some classics are treated. Worse, no credit to the original composer! Needs to stop!"
Over the last two years, Bollywood has witnessed several recreations such as "Pal pal dil ke paas", "Tumhe apna banane ka", "Laila main Laila", "Saara zamana", "Tamma tamma" and "Tu cheez badi hai mast".
