Former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has subtly criticized the newly released track “Pasoori No” from the movie “Satyaprem Ki Katha,” which is a remake of the Coke Studio song “Pasoori” by Ali Sethi and Shae Gil. Akhtar expressed his dislike for the Bollywood remake on social media, stating, “What is this disaster?”
On June 26, T-Series released the music video for “Pasoori No” featuring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani. However, the song received negative responses from listeners, particularly in Pakistan, who felt that it butchered the original track that was highly popular when it was released last year. Pakistani celebrities such as Adnan Siddiqui and Amar Khan also expressed their dislike for the remade version of the song.

Even before the release of the Bollywood track, Siddiqui, who acted alongside Sridevi in “Mom,” had expressed concerns about the remake, stating, “Pasoori is a song loved all over the world. I hope Bollywood won’t ruin this masterpiece like it does with other remakes.” After the song was released, Siddiqui tweeted, “And Bollywood did exactly what we feared! #pasoori #nogoodasusual.”
Amar Khan, the actress from “Daraar,” questioned why the original song was called a “global hit” instead of a “Pakistani hit.” She expressed her disappointment with Bollywood’s recent trend of ruining their own classics and stated that she grew up listening to Indian songs.
The Hindi remake of “Pasoori” is composed by Rochak Kohli and sung by Arijit Singh and Tulsi Kumar. The original version by Ali Sethi was part of Coke Studio Season 14 and gained international recognition. Despite the negative reactions, the Bollywood remake has already received over 12 million views on YouTube.
“Satyaprem Ki Katha” is directed by Sameer Vidwans and jointly produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Namah Pictures. The film is set to release in cinemas on June 29.
