Didn't think it was a good idea; I categorically said NO - A.R. Rahman on The Humma Song
While the makers of Ok Jaanu are basking in the success of The Humma Song, looks like the original composer of Hamma Hamma, the music maestro A.R. Rahman is not happy with the recreation.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Rahman spilled the beans on the revised version of Hamma Hamma - and how he was not convinced about The Humma Song, ever!
Rapper Badshaah reworked the classic track for the Aditya Roy Kapur-Shraddha Kapoor film. On being asked how he felt about the new version, Rahman shared, "I had a complete block. I categorically said 'No' when Karan Johar (producer, 'Ok Jaanu') and Shaad Ali (director) came to me with it. I said I don't think this is a good idea. Let's not do it. But they were convinced that Badshah could spin his magic and make it work for the younger audience. They wanted to go ahead with it. Now that the song has released, it's apparently a big hit, so I guess they were probably right."
Which version do you like - A.R. Rahman's Hamma Hamma or Ok Jaanu's The Humma Song?
