'Student of the Year 2' makers released their first song from the film a while back titled 'The Jawaani Song', which is a reprised version of Kishore Kumar's popular number "Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani'. The original version starred Randhir Kapoor and Jaya Bachchan, which has now been picturized on Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday.
And now, a South Korean boy group called 'In2It' consisting of seven members, Yoo Ji-ahn, Jung Yeon-tae, Hwang In-ho, Han Hyun-uk, Lee In-pyo, Kim Sung-hyun and Isaac Voo, have performed on the same number and has left everyone stunned. The group shared the video on their Twitter handle and wrote: "[Dance Cover] IN2IT - The Jawaani Song (Feat. AleXa) (원곡 : Karan Johar)"

Karan Johar after watching the video wrote: "It's official, the world is hooked onto the 'Gili Gili Akkha' fever! @Official_IN2IT is killing it with #TheJawaaniSong!!!"
Music composer Vishal Dadlani also tweeted in Korean which in translation means: "We are young and we are crazy!! :) #IN2IT #Awesome"

Meanwhile, not many liked the remixed version of 1972 RD Burman classic 'Ye Jawaani hai Diwaani' starring Randhir Kapoor and Jaya Bachchan. While some have enjoyed the remix by Vishal and Shekhar, others haven't appreciated it much saying they have ruined the original.
Speaking to a daily, Randhir Kapoor who featured in the original song spoke about the song and came out in support of Karan Johar and the makers for recreating it. He said: "I feel there is no harm in recreating songs. The original track came out four decades ago. Many youngsters were not aware of the song, but today, everyone knows it because of the remix. [After the redux version released], they all went back and searched for the original song on the Internet. I haven’t seen the song, but I have heard it; it has a nice tune. Also, Karan has officially bought the rights of the number. So, his intentions are honest.”
