Udit Narayan opened up about his views of Mr. & Mrs. Mahi’s song ‘Dekha Tenu.’ The new track includes popular lines from the iconic song ‘Shava Shava’ from ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham,’ originally sung by Udit Narayan as the chorus. Maestro Jaani penned the lyrics for the rest of the recreated version. In an exclusive interview with News18.com, the singer revealed that when he was asked to sing the recreation, he put the offer on hold for four months. 

The singer revealed he was unaware of the fact that the song was being recreated for a film produced by Karan Johar.

Released earlier this month, ‘Dekha Tenu‘ features Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao and is sung by Mohammad Faiz. While admitting his mistake Narayan acknowledged that the producers had approached him to sing the song. Moreover, they also waited for four months for his response. Let’s check out the complete details of this story.

Udit Narayan admitted his mistake

The singer said in the interview, “I was told the song was being recreated for a Rajkummar Rao film. Galti waha hui ke jisne phone kiya, wo clear nahi kar rahe the ke same gaana jo gaaya hai, wo recreate karna hai mujhe (The gaffe happened when the person who approached me did not provide me details about the recreation). They didn’t tell me it is a Karan Johar film either. I presumed it was a newbie composer who was recreating it and I didn’t pay enough attention. I am being very honest, it is my mistake. There was confusion here and even I didn’t know but I do remember they waited for me, they wanted me to be a part of the song. If I had gotten a clear picture, I wouldn’t have done this.”

Despite losing the opportunity to sing the song, he sent his best wishes to Mohammad Faiz, “Communication sahi nahi mila, but koi baat nahi, a new singer has sung the song and I send him my good wishes.”

Talking about his regret he noted, “On one side, I am feeling bad but on the other, I am also happy that a new singer got an opportunity to sing. I am a workaholic. I thought whatever songs of mine are getting recreated, I would love to sing them myself. And all of them became popular once again. I shouldn’t have missed the opportunity but somehow there was a mistake. But on the bright side, the song that I once sang got recreated and people are loving it. That’s a good sign.”

“People still want to listen to my songs, it is a proud moment for me,” he added.
