- Salman Khan says remixing old tracks "keep the songs alive"
- Jacqueline's Ek Do Teen was slammed by the makers of the original song
- Ek Do Teen redux is a part of Tiger Shroff's Baaghi 2
The Tezaab director also said that remixing old iconic songs is "creative vandalism" and that there should be "strict laws" against it. But Salman Khan, whose Judwaa 2 was recently recycled with Varun Dhawan in lead role, has a different take on this as well. He tweeted: "(It is) nice to see Varun (Dhawan) and Jackie dance to our songs makes us proud and (it) keeps the songs alive and fans listening, dancing and having a blast. Makes me proud. Enjoy Karo!"

Judwaa 2 also revamped two of Salman Khan's iconic songs - Oonchi Hai Building and Tan Tana Tan Tara.
Speaking to IANS, N Chandra had said: "I can't believe they've done this to Ek Do Teen. It's crass beyond imagination. And Jacqueline Fernandez doing Madhuri Dixit's number? Give me a break! It's like turning the Central Park into a botanical garden. Madhuri danced with such grace and innocence." When IANS asked Saroj Khan about the new version of the song, she refused to comment.
