Govinda is not amused with what Kartik Aaryan has done to the iconic Ankhiyon Se Goli Maare song from his 1998 hit Dulhe Raja. The remix version filmed on Kartik Aryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday for the film Pati Patni Aur Woh has apparently not gone down well with Govinda’s fans many of whom have lashed out at what they as a desecration of the original song.
Govinda has decided to stay out of any public comment on the issue. “He doesn’t want to give the remix any added publicity,” says a close friend of Govinda. “But he is not flattered. Far from it. Kartik Aaryan and the girls (Bhumi, Ananya) seem clueless about the pace and rhythm of the song,” says the friend.
Govinda feels today’s generation of stars don’t feel the music. “Govinda feels they dance mechanically, without feeling. One has to feel the music. He can’t see any feeling in the way his songs are done,” says the friend.
The strangest thing and the one thing that bothers Govinda the most is the lack of acknowledgement for the original song, “Ankhiyon Se Goli Maare involved a lot of talent besides Govinda and Raveena Tandon. They should be acknowledged.”
