Mohra director Rajiv Rai on Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif’s Tip Tip Barsa Pani.
It’s the period of remixes, and Mohra’s famous Tip Barsa Pani couldn’t get away from the trend. The song, which originally featured Raveena Tandon and Akshay Kumar, was remixed for Akshay’s most recent film, Sooryavanshi. This time, in any case, his co-star was Katrina Kaif. The song has spawned much discussion and debate, provoking responses from several celebrities.
Mohra director Rajiv Rai said that while he doesn’t completely uphold the idea of remixes, he made an ‘exception’ this time. He told The Times of India, “I don’t believe in remixes. I have never done it and will not do it. This time I have made an exception. When the makers approached me, I agreed to give permission as these are times when us filmmakers should support each other and I am glad people are back at the cinemas.”
Explaining further, Rai said that Salman Khan wanted to reamke Tridev, but the director explained that he would just use the title and the story would be new. He said, “To be honest, I really don’t like remaking my own films (except for Salman Khan), I am also against using my old songs in my new films and I told this to Salman and he agreed to it. I told him about the new script and he was quite excited about it, too. We will hopefully work on it soon.”
