For those who love Bollywood films and their music, this week has been all about old songs packaged in a new way. In three days, the world got three brand new remixes of old classics, starting with Alia Bhatt's version of Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le, Kaabil's Haseeno Ka Deewana and the just-released Humma Humma from OK Jaanu.

Starting with A R Rahman's classic Humma Humma from Mani Ratnam's Bombay - the new version, also by him, is called The Humma Song and features a rap by Badshah.

Haseeno Ka Deewana is a reworking of Saara Zamana from Yaaraana, which featured Amitabh Bachchan wearing a lit-up jacket.

While people loved Alia in the new Ae Zindagi (especially her copying Shah Rukh Khan's pose in the video), Haseeno Ka Deewana has been trending on YouTube and is being touted as the party song of the year. Here's what Twitter has to say about the two songs:
