Makers repackage iconic songs for today’s generation, says Sonakshi Sinha

New Delhi: Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has featured in the video of the recreated version of "Mungda" song, says that makers repackage iconic songs for the current generation.

Her latest dance number "Mungda" for the film "Total Dhamaal" has earned the wrath of the fans of the original number featuring Helen.

"Mungda" was originally sung by Usha Mangeshkar with music by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

The song has been recreated by singers Jyotica Tangri, Shaan and Subhro Ganguly and music director duo Gourov-Roshin.

Reacting to the criticism, Sonakshi said: "Even I like the original better and there is no comparison with that. When we recreate a song, that time we don't think that we will make a particular song better than the original one because when you are recreating an iconic song then there is no point making comparison with the recreated song."

"We are only trying to repackage that and give it to the today's generation who might not listen to old songs. For me as an artiste, I have been told by makers of the film that they wanted me to be a part of the song as they don't see anybody performing it so, that was a big deal for me that makers felt that I would do justice to the song and I am very happy."

Sonakshi was interacting with the media at the fourth edition of Next Brand Vision Awards 2019 here on Tuesday.

Talking about her upcoming releases, she said: "I am looking forward to every film of mine which is coming out this year. 'Kalank' is my next release. It is releasing in April.

"I am shooting for 'Mission Mangal', which will release in August. We are almost done with that. I am starting 'Dabangg 3' around the end of April."

Asked about the amount of fun audiences should expect from "Dabangg 3", Sonakshi said: "Double and triple of what you saw in first two parts."

Total Dhamaal new song out: Sonakshi Sinha steps into Helen’s shoes for remake of hit classic song ‘Mungda’

New Delhi: The makers of 'Total Dhamaal' have released the second song from the film and it is a remake of popular 70s number 'Mungda' from the film Inkaar (1978). The song features Sonakshi Sinha who sizzles on the remake of hit classic Helen item number. The song also features film lead actor Ajay Devgn.

The song has been sung by Jyotica Tangri, Shaan, and Subhro Ganguly and is re-arranged by Gourov-Roshin with additional lyrics penned by Kunwar Juneja. 

The original version had Helen grooving on the Marathi song, dressed up as a typical local girl, in a desi bar set up, whereas the recreated version has been much glamorised and has Sonakshi shaking her legs in glittery outfits. Notably, the first song in the film, 'Paisa Yeh Paisa', was also a remake of a hit oldie from the past. However, both the songs from the film have failed to impress the audience and are barely passable.

Watch the song below: 

Earlier this month, posters and first official trailer of the film was released by the makers, which left the audience in splits.

The movie promise to be packed with several comic punches. The best part is the ensemble star cast and some amazing dialogues.

'Total Dhamaal' is a sequel to 2011 hit venture 'Double Dhamaal'. It happens to be the third part of the 'Dhamaal' series. The movie has an ensemble star cast with the likes of Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Madhuri Dixit, Esha Gupta and Anil Kapoor in the lead roles.

The film is scheduled to hit the screens on February 22, 2019.

It is after a long hiatus that the audiences will get to see the magical Jodi of Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit together on the silver screens.

Misson Mangal: Taapsee Pannu wraps up Akshay Kumar starrer, reveals her look

New Delhi: Actress Taapsee Pannu has wrapped up shooting for the multi-starrer film 'Mission Mangal'. The film is touted to as India's first space film

Taapsee took to Instagram to share the news with her fans besides sharing her look from the film.

The biographical-drama is directed by Jagan Shakti and is co-produced by R Balki and Akshay Kumar. The film had gone on the floors in mid November last year. In November 2018, a copyright infringement lawsuit was filed against the makers of the film by the filmmaker Radha Bharadwaj.

'Mission Mangal' is based on India's 2013 space programme of Mangalyaan mission and will be co-produced by Fox Star Studios and Cape of Good Films. It will hit the screens on August 15, 2019.

Taapsee, who was last seen in 'Mulk', is known for portraying versatile and different roles in movies like 'Pink', 'Baby', 'Judwaa 2', 'Naam Shabana'. She was last seen in 'Manmarziyaan' alongside Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal.

I’m really excited for 2019: Sonakshi Sinha

Mumbai: Actress Sonakshi Sinha is really excited about the year ahead and says the audience will see her narrating different stories in 2019, which she hopes will be enjoyed across genre.

"I'm really excited for the year to pan out. Doing all these interesting films, narrating such different stories and playing characters so far apart from each other is what made me opt for these projects when the offers came my way," she said in a statement.

The actress will be seen in Abhishek Varman's period drama "Kalank", and then in India's first space film "Mission Mangal". 

She is currently shooting for an yet-untitled film in Amritsar. Directed by Shilpi Dasgupta and jointly produced by T-Series and Mrighdeep Lamba, the film is scheduled to release in August this year. 

She will end the year with "Dabangg 3".

The actress said the "prep and head space for each character has been very individualistic and the process of unlearning and relearning has been a constant".

"Every director's narrative and each character's journey is so different which makes this entire process riveting. 

"I'm really looking forward to the year ahead and I hope the audiences enjoy my performances as much as I'm enjoying working," she added.
