The original musicians are not very happy with the remix. In a Deccan Chroniclereport, Usha Mangeshkar said, “Our songs were created after a great deal of thought and they were done with sensitivity and care. To rip them off in this arbitrary manner is not correct.” Her sister Lata added, “We are not asked if we approve or not. No one seeks our consent before using our songs. Is that right?”

Rajesh Roshan who composed also expresses his displeasure, “I think there is less of inspiration and more of perspiration in the music industry. The filmmakers have lost confidence in creating new songs.”
