After impressing audiences with her dance moves in the recreation of the song Dilbar Dilbar, starlet Nora Fatehi has now been featured in the new version of O Saki Saki, originally performed by Koena Mitra.

The former shared a glimpse of the song on social media, with the caption, “Setting your screens on fire with O Saki Saki.”

In the teaser, she is seen playing with fire and flaunting belly dance moves, and it seems Nora has added a new flavour to the song. The recreated song has been launched today.

It is sung by Neha Kakkar, Tulsi Kumar and composed by Tanishk Bagchi, and will be a part of John Abraham’s film Batla House. The original song from the film Musafir, sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and also featured Sanjay Dutt.

However, Koena shared that she is not happy with the new version, and called it a “mess”.

“Sunidhi Chauhan, Sukhwinder Singh, Vishal and Shekhar’s combination was outstanding. I didn’t like the new version, it’s a mess. This song had crashed many blockbusters. Why Batla House, why? PS Nora is a stunner. Hope she saves our pride,” Koena tweeted.

And fellow industry colleague, Sophie Chaudhry concurs with Korna.

“You were outstanding in that song Koena! Nora is lovely but wish every single song wasn’t being remade, especially when the original still sounds so amazing and fresh! Sunidhi and Sukhiji killed it!” she tweeted.

“Thanks Sophie,” the actor responded. “I agree, iconic songs shouldn’t be remade. Sunidhi and Sukhiji shouldn’t have been replaced… Simple.”

In case you share the same sentiments as Koena, here’s the video for the original song.
