New Delhi , -Anu Malik sang the original “Oonchi hai building” from Salman Khan starrer “Judwaa”, and he has also sung the track’s recreated version picturised on Varun Dhawan for “Judwaa 2”. The singer-composer says he’s impressed by the younger star.
“I sang this song for Salman Khan and now I have sung it for Varun Dhawan. Salman will always be a superstar. Salman took the song to a different level, but when I saw the (recreated version of the) song I also found a new superstar in Varun,” Malik told Desi-Box.
Malik sang the original number when he was 34 years old and now 20 years later, he has come up with “Oonchi hai building 2.0”, which he has done as a duet with singer Neha Kakkar. The “Lift teri bandh hai” song — the recreated track — currently has over 32,000,000 views on Youtube. Malik says no major changes have been made to the song, which is picturised on Varun and actresses Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu.
“We have just changed the beat to make it more contemporary,” he added.
“I feel very elated because with the song which we recorded 20 years ago, we had no clue what we were doing. We just knew that we wanted to make a hit number. I was encouraged by Sajid Nadiadwala and David Dhawan… After 20 years, he makes ‘Judwaa 2’ and calls me again and uses my tunes.”
