Ever since the news of Masakali 2.0 was out a few days ago and subsequent to its teaser launch, there has been a lot of frenetic buzz about how the cult song from the 2009 film Delhi-6 has been reimagined for today’s youth by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series. The wait is finally over. The song is all yours for listening and viewing pleasure.
Young, good looking pair Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria can be seen steaming things up in the modern and naughtier version of AR Rahman's musical gem Masakali. With a more contemporary sound to it, Masakali 2.0 has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi. The entire feel of the recreated version is groovy and peppy, which also makes it the upbeat love track of the year. Clearly, with the video guaranteed to win hearts all over, Masakali 2.0 is also on its way to becoming the next chartbuster from T-Series.
While the previous song was filmed on Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan, in Masakali 2.0 Sidharth and Tara up the ante with their naughty romance. The hot and happening jodi infuse life into the track with their delightful camaraderie. Their naughty nonchalance is hard to miss in what can be called the party track of the year. Tulsi Kumar, Sachet Tandon and Mohit Chauhan (also the original voice of Masakali) have teamed up to sing the track, with the female portion being the new inclusion in the ditty. With original lyrics by Prasoon Joshi, Tanishk Bagchi has penned the additional lyrics.
The 3-minuter music video, directed and choreographed by Adil Shaikh has Sidharth and Tara sneaking into a plush hotel suite for some masti, only to be caught in the end. Sidharth maintains the shooting of the song has been a lot of fun. “Masakali is an indoor song, which has more relevance today because all of us are staying in and staying safe, given the current situation. That time, we unintentionally made a song on the same situation where two people are trying to stay indoors and had fun, did masti. That was the feeling on the set. I'm looking forward to it,” he informs. (ALSO READ: 'Love Lockdown' As Tara Sutaria Romances Rumoured Ex Sidharth Malhotra In Masakali 2 - Teaser OUT)
Talking about the recreated version, an evidently happy Tara says, "Masakali 2.0 was wonderful to film and such fun to rehearse for. Sid and I rehearsed only once but we managed to shoot the whole song so quickly and effortlessly, it was a breeze! Masakali is such a loved song from Delhi-6 and it’s so catchy despite being a mid-tempo tune. I loved the original version and I think Bhushanji and Tanishk have re-imagined Masakali 2.0 beautifully. Tulsi and Sachet have given it a fun and sexy spin which I love! It’s amazing to have had yet another great song to work on."
Masakali 2.0, produced by Bhushan Kumar, featuring Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria, sung by Tulsi Kumar, Sachet Tandon and Mohit Chauhan, has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi.
