A few days after the makers of Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao starrer Fanney Khan released Achche Din Kab Ayenge, it grabbed headlines as netizens cited the song to tease Modi govt. Now, to stay away from the political hurdle, makers have dropped a new version of the song - titled Mere Acche Din Ab Aaye Re.
A source close to the makers told Mid-day, "After the first version came out, a lot of people online used it to attack the Central Government and question Modi on his promise of achche din. The song was getting politicised needlessly. The producers also got a few calls from high places, after which they decided to release the new version. They are even contemplating pulling down the original song."
Atul Manjrekar- director of Fanney Khan stated that the new version was to unveiled only after the film hit theatres. He told the tabloid, "But, we cut a new video and released it now because our song was unnecessarily taking a political colour. It didn't strike us that this is also the slogan of the government. We didn't expect such a reaction. Fanney Khan is a simple film about a cab driver and his dreams. I hope people see the song in the right context and not misconstrue it."Talking about the original song, it displayed the real struggle of Anil Kapoor, who wants his days to be changed so that he can make his daughter a bigger star.
