In a report carried out by a news portal, Jigar Saraiya said that he and Sachin do not stand by remakes at all. They do not appreciate it and they cannot do it well.

Jigar stated that those who are doing it and working for the audience it is great because it needs a lot of talent to make remixes. This is one part of the story. Jigar Saraiya said that the other part of the story is that, of course, the duo does not stand morally for remixes because when a song is made, it is not a one-day job. It could take a year or more.
