Tanishk Bagchi talks about his latest remake track Humma Humma and dealing with criticism for the songYour recent composed song Humma Humma from Ok Jaanu has topped the charts but is also getting some mixed reviews... Comment?
I am not so worried about the mixed reviews because before making this song I was aware of the fact that some are going to appreciate and some are not. I have taken the negative comments in a positive way and the criticism is also right from their point of view.
When the song came out we were very worried it would work or not but, there was a genuine intention in our mind if we are recreating a song it should compliment with the old track. We have kept it very simple and given a humble approach to the song, which is why it worked. The mixed reviews have helped us by making us little stronger and aware of a lot of things. Humma song is a trend setter people may not like it now but they may grove on this song soon.
Do you think Remo Fernandes’ criticism for the new revised Humma song is valid?
He is definitely right because it’s his area, obviously he will feel bad. When we had to choose a voice our first preference was Remo sir only but, due to the situation of the song and also the actor (Aditya Roy Kapur) was very young we thought of taking someone new. It’s not a remix we have just recreated the song and it’s a tribute from us to Remo as well as Rehman sir.. Remo will always be remembered as the Humma guy. It will always be his song.
Do you feel he criticised the new version because he was not offered this song?
May be he genuinely did not like it because whatever he has heard in his time had the funky elements that was missing in this track because we made it a point to not use. He is thinking of the original song apart from the tune and theme.
