I have always preferred the original song to a remix. Many people feel the same. My comment about Aaj phir tum pe was about the remix not the singer. Remixes should do justice to the original song. So many nineties songs are redone but they don’t do any justice to the original. We have also done tributes to music composers but they were done gracefully.
I would urge respectable media not to sensationalise statements ..isn’t there enough in the world to talk about . If they must let them speak about the cause we have taken up of gifting sound to the underprivileged.
