These days, remaking old hit songs has become a new trend. From Humma Humma to Tamma Tamma and Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast, a lot of rehashed versions of 90s tracks sprung up in the recent past.
Recently, Arjun Kapoor’s forthcoming film Mubarakan featured a recreated version of the 1980s song 'Hawa Hawa' which was originally sung by Pakistani pop artiste, Hasan Jahangir.
During the launch of the song, Kapoor had said, “The original song celebrates the spirit of his forthcoming film. We’ve chosen Hawa Hawa according to the situation. It’s a song we have all grown up dancing to and enjoying ourselves.”
The 32-year-old actor shared the news with his fans on Twitter with the link of the new song video which is sung by Mika Singh and Prakriti Kakar.
This is what he tweeted.

As soon as he tweeted, a lot of Pakistani users bashed the song by calling the team of Mubarakan “copy cats” for “copying” and “remixing” the iconic song which was first released across the border in 1980s.
Was released in Pakistan in 1980s!!
Koi sharam hoti ha Koi haya hoti ha..

This song was sung in 1980's by a Pakistani singer. You don't feel any shame in copying Pakistani songs for your movies…
