Actor Jackky Bhagnani on Wednesday said that they recreated Lata Mangeshkar-sung 'Chalte chalte' keeping in mind its sanctity as an old classic.

Mangeshkar had reportedly expressed unhappiness over the remixing of the song, a classic from Meena Kumari-starrer Pakeezah.
"In our country, Lata Mangeshkar, Sachin Tendulkar, and Amitabh Bachchan are legends of our nation so if Lataji has commented, then she must be right. I am sure she has a perception and according to her perspective, she is not mistaken. She is a senior person and must be amused at why the songs are being remixed so often these days, why aren't new songs being created.", said Jackky Bhagnani.

"Ma'am please listen to the song once and if you still think the same then, of course, your wish is our command," Jackky said in a statement. The Mitron actor said that Tanishk Bagchi has created a beautiful melody which is new but connects to the old song. Atif Aslam gave his voice to the new version.

"The song is moving with time. My father's favourite song is 'Chalte chalte' but when I visited Coimbatore recently, someone came up to me and complimented saying 'What a song 'Chalte chalte' is from your film', because they don't know the original. So we are taking them back to 'Chalte Chalte', we are not spoiling the sanctity of the song,"
