Oh! So This Is What Hans Raj Hans Had To Say About Honey Singh's Version Of 'Dil Chori'

By: Prakriti | January 9, 2018

Yet again, another hit Punjabi track has been  re-created and is topping the charts. Honey Singh's comeback song'Dil Chori' for the Bollywood movie 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' is originally a very famous track by the sufi music maestro Hans Raj Hans. The remake has already become quite popular and Honey Singh's fans seem to be overjoyed about his comeback.

The song has already crossed more than 46 million views on YouTube and is in the news for all the right reasons.



We exclusively contacted the legendary Punjabi singer Hans Raj Hans, asked him about his take on the remake and also about the transition of the Punjabi music scene. Here is what he had to say:

Your song has made it to the top charts yet again after so many years, how do you feel about it and what is your take on Honey Singh's version of Dil Chori?

I am glad that the song is back and the youth is loving it. I feel great that the song is receiving so much love yet again. What gives me even more happiness is that this song is re created by Honey Singh. It has been long that Honey has not been in the industry and he made a comeback with this song. He must have scrolled through a lot of songs before finalizing this one for his comeback and I am overjoyed that he has made his comeback now.

Did you watch the picturization of the song? Are you happy with the final product?

Honey has re-created it as per the need of the movie and similarly the picturization has also been done keeping in mind the requirement. Nevertheless, I am happy that the song is making it to the top charts.

Who approached you first for this song and what was your first reaction?

My son Navraj is a very close friend of Honey Singh. He talked to me about Honey's desire to recreate my song Dil Chori. My instant reaction to it was "It’s a great idea if Honey wants to make a come back with this song."

Do you think that Bollywood is running out of content now that they are time and again using old hit Punjabi numbers and re creating them?

Of course! Something similar must be the reason for this question that you've asked me. There must be a reason to it, probably that’s why they aren’t creating new music and simply re-creating the oldies, especially he tracks that have been loved by the audiences even back then. Maybe lack of good content or one may say lack of innovation is the reason behind this.

It has been long that you have been in the Punjabi music industry, what transition do you feel has come in the Punjabi music scene over the years?

The scenario in the music industry has definitely changed and has taken a revolution. If you hear the music that was created years back, you’ll realize how beautiful the lyrics were in those times but now it is all about beats. The lyrics are defiantly lewd but to this I would even add that it is as per the current scenario of the society. Music is the face of what is going on in today’s world.

People complain about alcoholism and guns in Punjabi songs??

Aren’t these things so commonly available in the society these days. Good, peaceful atmosphere makes wise and thoughtful philosophers and poets like the ones whom we witnessed in the earlier era. Today, the trend is all about the loud beats and it is rare to see people getting bothered about the lyrics or vulgarity in the songs. They enjoy the beats and dance to the music insanely.

Hans Raj Hans was recently seen with his elder son Navraj performing at the Mixtape Punjabi's platform. He also revealed that he would be doing the same with his younger son Yuvraj very soon.

We are pretty excited to see him back in action.
