If there's a formula to create a chartbuster, it has to be a remix of an old song. It doesn't matter if the newer version has different lyrics or a completely new tune, the formula still works. Purists hate when classic Bollywood songs are remade but seeing how they top the charts, music composers would love to include one in every album. Check out which Bollywood songs had a version 2.0 in 2017.
The Humma Song
A rendition of Humma Humma from Bombay, The Humma Song featured Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. Both the tracks were composed by A. R. Rahman.
