New Delhi, Sep 25 : Anu Malik sang the original “Oonchi hai building” from Salman Khan starrer “Judwaa”, and he has also sung the track’s recreated version picturised on Varun Dhawan for “Judwaa 2”. The singer-composer says he’s impressed by the younger star.

“I sang this song for Salman Khan and now I have sung it for Varun Dhawan. Salman will always be a superstar. Salman took the song to a different level, but when I saw the (recreated version of the) song I also found a new superstar in Varun,” Malik told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

Malik sang the original number when he was 34 years old and now 20 years later, he has come up with “Oonchi hai building 2.0”, which he has done as a duet with singer Neha Kakkar. The “Lift teri bandh hai” song — the recreated track — currently has over 32,000,000 views on Youtube.

Malik says no major changes have been made to the song, which is picturised on Varun and actresses Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu.

“We have just changed the beat to make it more contemporary,” he added.

Asked how he feels about the appreciation the recreated version is receiving, Malik said: “I feel very elated because with the song which we recorded 20 years ago, we had no clue what we were doing. We just knew that we wanted to make a hit number. I was encouraged by Sajid Nadiadwala and David Dhawan… After 20 years, he makes ‘Judwaa 2’ and calls me again and uses my tunes and says, ‘Anu, I want you to sing for Varun'”.

“The best compliment Sajid gave me was by saying ‘We struck gold by taking you for the song’, and David gave me a message ‘You are true hero’ of ‘Judwaa 2’… The song released and got 18 million views in just three days. Sajid told me that this is also a reaffirmation of your voice because you have got more credit this time than last time,” he added.

“Judwaa 2” is being presented by Fox Star Studios. It is releasing on September 29.

On the work front, Malik is also working on the entire score of filmmaker J.P. Dutta’s upcoming movie “Paltan”. (IANS)

Varun talked about his latest movie.

While interacting with the media as well as fans Varun said: “‘October’ comes from an extremely special place from my heart because as my career forwarded, I just felt that I started becoming more selfish and I wanted to do a selfless character like Dan.”

“Dan is within all of us, we have just forgotten it with time. Let’s not lose the humanity in human and that’s what I wanted to say with ‘October’,” he added.

The “Badlapur” actor pleaded with his fans that it is important to give time to people in life.

“Now that the film is out I can finally say this. Life is so unpredictable and we don’t know when we might lose someone who is close to us. It is so important to give time to people in life and know what is your priority in life,” he said.

Shoojit Sircar directorial “October” is about the life of Dan (Varun Dhawan), a hotel intern and how he deals with the life and death of a friend Shiuli (Banita Sandhu).

The film produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar stars Varun along with Banita Sandhu in the lead roles. The film written by Juhi Chaturvedi and presented under the Rising Sun Films banner hit the theatres on Friday. IANS
