Ever since Student Of The Year‘s sequel has been announced the film has been under the trollers’ radar. After the release of the trailer and The Jawaani Song, the targetting has only increased. There are a lot of people who have disliked the trailer and have also trolled the remade song.
However, Randhir Kapoor who enacted the original song supports the recreation and says there’s nothing wrong with it. Talking about the same with Mid-Day, Randhir said, “I feel there is no harm in recreating songs. The original track came out four decades ago. Many youngsters were not aware of the song, but today, everyone knows it because of the remix. [After the redux version released], they all went back and searched for the original song on the Internet. I haven’t seen the song, but I have heard it; it has a nice tune. Also, Karan has officially bought the rights of the number. So, his intentions are honest.”
