Anuradha Paudwal clarifies her comments on remixes in Hindi movies
Legendary singer Anuradha Paudwal recently stirred up controversy with her comments on the trend of remixes in Hindi movies. In a statement issued by the singer, she clarified her stance and urged the media to avoid sensationalism.
Remixes should do justice to the original song
Many people assume that Paudwal was speaking against popular singer Arijit Singh when she made comments about the remix version of her song ‘Aaj Phir Tum Pe’ from the movie Dayavan (1989). However, in her statement, she clarified that she has always preferred the original song to a remix and that her comment about the song was about the remix, not the singer.
Paudwal emphasised that remixes should do justice to the original song, as many ’90s songs are redone but fail to capture the essence of the original. The singer added that tributes to music composers could be done gracefully.
Sensationalism in the media
Paudwal also urged the media to avoid sensationalism and clarify statements before assuming things. The veteran singer asked if there wasn’t enough in the world to talk about. She felt that the media should focus instead on the cause of gifting sound to the underprivileged.
Emotional experience with remix
Paudwal previously recounted that someone had asked her to listen to the remix version of ‘Aaj Phir Tum Pe,’ and when she heard it, she was in tears. However, she found solace once again in her version of the song on YouTube, which she listened to multiple times.
Anuradha Paudwal’s clarification on remixes brings into focus the importance of maintaining the essence of an original song in remixes. As the trend of remixes in Hindi movies continues, it is crucial to understand and respect the artistry and creativity of the original songwriters and singers.
