Ek Do Teen's remix version with Jacqueline is out, and it's nowhere close to Madhuri's magic

Hey Bollywood, why you do this to our memories? Just why?

Are you even a true blue '90s kid if you have not sung Ek Do Teen from Tezaab (1988) while playing antakshari? Or haven't danced to it?

Ever since the first look of Ek Do Teen featuring Jacqueline Fernandez from Baaghi 2 (starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani) started doing the rounds on the Internet, everyone has had apprehensions about it. People watched the teaser and immediately went on to watch Madhuri Dixit's version to feel better about life. We did the same, bruh!

The hit number's remixed version crooned by Shreya Ghoshal hit the web a while ago, and yet again we are not impressed. Like, it's nowhere close to Madhuri's magic.








We mean, why? Why do we need another Ek Do Teen when we have a classic already? And this isn't even a patch on Madhuri's charisma in the dance number. Jacqueline is looking hot, no doubt. But those are really big shoes to fill, Jacky! And the size is wrong for you.

Bollywood has been doing this to our memories for a long time, remixing and spoiling songs for us. Case in point: Humma Humma, Tamma Tamma, Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast, and the list goes on. So with the remixed number of Madhuri's cult number out, the debate regarding why do we need such horrendous remixes is back.

Netizens are echoeing our emotions, too.






The Laxmikant Pyarelal hit sung by Alka Yagnik is ringing in our ears and we are re-watching it, on loop.







Ain't nothing better than the original Mohini's killer moves and vivacious expressions. Sadly, for the new one, we can't even say, 'Tera karoon din gin gin ke intezar', cuz we definitely didn't count days for it to appear. And talking of bahaar? Nope, there was no joy anywhere after watching it.

Hey Bollywood, why you do this to our memories? Just why?
