Noted poet, lyricist and film maker voiced his opposition to the recent trend of remixing old cult songs. He feels that remixing classsic songs is a crime against the cinematic history of India.
“I am against remixing. The songs are now used only to dance. Who are you to temper with someone else’s creation,” Gulzar told a packed audience at the ongoing Jaipur literature festival.
“I blame the present generation for destroying cinematic history. It is like repainting Ajanta and Ellora. They don’t need a song to listen, they want to dance on the tunes and thus wreck havoc on the old songs.”
