For all the people who love the cult classic song Chalte Chalte from Pakeezah sung by the iconic Lata Mangeshkar, the remixed version of the same is sure to give you a shocker.

Mangeshkar, who was yet to listen to the remixed version of the song, speaking to a news publication, said, “”And I don’t want to hear it. This trend of remixing old songs saddens me. Where is the creativity in simply lifting acknowledged, beloved classics and shuffling the notes around? I’ve even heard that the lyrics are changed in the remixes. By whose consent?”

The veteran singer told IANS, “The original poets and composers wrote what they had to. Nobody has the right to tamper with the creativity of these great composers and lyricists.”

While the original song had been sung by Ghulam Mohammed, the current one has been reprised by Tanishk Bagchi and sung by Atif Aslam for the movie Mitron, which stars Jackky Bhagnani and Kritika Kamra.
