AR Rahman Rescue Fans From Masakali 2.0:
‘Masakali’ composer AR Rahman requested his fan base to watch ‘original’ song soon after Sidharth Malhotra-Tara Sutaria’s version i.e. Masakali 2.0 was rejected out straight by the social media.
In other words, it can be said AR Rahman came as a help in times of dire need.
Talking about AR Rahman’s involvement in all this. He was the same person who composed Sonam Kapoor-Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Masakali’, whilst Tanishk Bagchi was responsible for the composition of Music Disaster: ‘Masakali 2.0’ featuring Bollywood Movie Marjaavaan Lovers: Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria.
Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutatria had featured in the recreated version of ‘Masakali’ that featured Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Masakali’. Soon after Sidharth and Tara’s recreated version was released, the internet showed its disappointment in the song, only to be followed by the original music composer AR Rahman urging his fans to watch the ‘Delhi 6’ song.
“No shortcuts, properly commissioned, sleepless nights, writes and rewrites. Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming with the aim to produce music that can last generations. A team of a Director, a Composer and a Lyricist supported by actors, dance directors and a relentless film crew.” – Lots of love and prayers, A.R. Rahman.”
These were the words that Oscar Winner music composer used a few hours after Sidharth and Tara’s ‘Masakali 2.0’ released and received a major backlash in return.
Have a look at his tweet:

Reading Rahman’s tweet in detail, it appears that he is not at all happy with Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria’s version of ‘Masakali’. Rahman received a lot of support from the internet fan base after his ‘no shortcuts’ tweet.
Helmed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, ‘Masakali’ was penned down by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Mohit Chauhan. ‘Masakali 2.0’, meanwhile, is crooned by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon. The song is both composed and written by Tanishk Bagchi. The recreation was a part of Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.
It appeared that a money-saving exercise went wrong.
