Remixes of old classic songs happen quite fast and most of the time they do not get liked by a major chunk of listeners. The evergreen melodies are worked on to give out peppy remixes which just spoil the mood. Therefore, remixes have gained a bad reputation. However, did you know, Asha Bhosle used to remix her old classic songs? Now, Divya Khosla Kumar, whose label, T-Series, has churned out the most remixes over the past decade has answered her opinions on remixes.
Divya Khosla Kumar reveals Asha Bhosle would Remix her 60’s Classics during the 90s
In an interview with BollywoodLife, Divya Khosla revealed, “When the pop phase picked up in the 90s, Asha Bhosleji recreated all her tracks from the 60s, and she got them back in the 90s, and we enjoyed them so much, like I being a 90s kid, I enjoyed it so much because I had not enjoyed songs from the 60s; the 60s generation had enjoyed those songs. So, I feel, this generation should also get a chance to enjoy old songs because music is universal, it transcends boundaries and it’s the only thing that brings hearts closer and can connect people all over the world. Music shouldn’t receive any negativity is what I feel because it’s an art form and is a very pure art form and this also gives a good platform to a lot of new talent.”
“I don’t think music should be met with negative reactions as it’s a very pious and pure art form and should be enjoyed over and over again, why should a tune only be restricted to the 60s or the 90s? Why can’t we make it contemporary and dance to it or sing it or enjoy it?”
She added that classic songs are meant to be kept in a museum.
“Like Yaad Piya Ki (her latest remixed hit, Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi, sung by Neha Kakkar) was enjoyed by so many and the original, too, was enjoyed so much. So, I feel it’s also a very beautiful tribute to the original in a way, so that’s what I feel,” added Divya.
