Temperatures are set to soar on Wednesday as Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra launch a remix version of the popular track Tennu Kala Chashma.
Released on YouTube on Wednesday, the first song from their upcoming film Baar Bara Dekho, was launched Wednesday morning on mobile app Flickbay. Punjabi rapper Badshah has recreated the song and Amrik Singh and Kumaar have penned the additional lines for the rap version.
Neha Kakkar, Badshah and Amar Arshi have lent their voices to the song.
While Badshah succeeds in keeping the music as peppy as the original, the new rap fails to catch our fantasy. ‘Apni adaaon se zyada nahi toh 10-12 ladke toh maar hi deti hogi tu din me’ does not exactly beat ‘something like a phenomenon’ from the Amar Arshi’s 1990-Punjabi chartbuster Tennu Kala Chashma. Bosco Martis uses Katrina and Sidharth to their best and his choreography makes you want to groove.

In a rare promotional stunt, this song, the first of Nitya Mehra’s directorial venture Baar Baar Dekho, was released before the trailer late on Wednesday. However, it was first exclusively released on a mobile app, Flickbay, on Wednesday morning.
Actor-producer Farhan Akhtar said, “The digital world has revolutionised the grammar of experiencing content. Also, it serves as a great platform for us to promote our films, and what better way to reach out to our audiences than via an app, which serves the purpose just right. Hence the decision to launch Kala Chashma on Flickbay exclusively.”
Katrina also shared a picture from the sets of the song late on Tuesday and revealed her ‘real thoughts’ at that moment. She posted on her Facebook page, “We having a blast, this is like a breeze.” Actual Thought - “That step was not right I think we should do another 15 takes, the wind blower is not in the right place, oh no, I should have rehearsed more!”
Baar Baar Dekho is a romantic film slated to release on September 9.
