- 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.
Ganesh Acharya, who was one of the background dancers in the original Ek Do Teen, has choreographed Jaqueline in the new version. Baaghi 2 will open in theatres on March 30.
