MUMBAI—T-Series, for almost five years now, has been placing a minimum of one old re-created hit in every production of theirs, and the latest is the redux of “Aashiq Banaya Aapne,” the cult 2005 song from the film of that same name. This Himesh Reshammiya-composed song, which marked his sensational debut as a playback singer then, has been sung by Neha Kakkar, with additional lyrics by Manoj Muntashir and re-composed by Tanishk Bagchi. The original lyrics are by Sameer. Technically processed portions of the original song, rendered by Reshammiya, have been interspersed, akin to the recent inclusion of Mohammed Rafi’s parts in the “O Meri Mehbooba” redux in “Fukrey Returns.”

In the tradition of celebrating piffle, a song launch was held on Jan. 31 for the song from this T-Series thriller directed by Vishal Pandya. It was attended by the principal team of the film, including Urvashi Rautela, on whom the song is filmed.

Muntashir, Reshammiya and Kakkar crooned to the latest track as Rautela joined them by surprising the audience with her singing skills. The trailer of the film has become an instant hit online and has surpassed all the hits and likes received for the last two films of the franchise. The trailer has received more than 30 million views online.

Karan Wahi, Vivaan Bhatena, Ihana Dhillon and Gulshan Grover star in the Mar. 9 release. Watch the song here.
