Ever since Delhi 6's iconic track Masakali's recreated version starring Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria has been released, everyone, including the lyricist and composer of the original song, expressed their disliking towards the song in various unique ways. Recently, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation also took a hilarious dig at the makers of Masakali 2.0 on their Twitter handle. After A.R. Rahman and Prasoon Joshi, DMRC also joined the bandwagon and indirectly slammed Masakali 2.0 by sharing the original song on Twitter.

The original track from Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan's Delhi 6 was sung by Mohit Chauhan, written by Prasoon Joshi, while the music of the song was composed by A.R. Rahman. However, Masakali 2.0 is sung by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon, while the music is composed by Tanishk Bagchi. Check out A.R. Rahman and Prasoon Joshi's reaction to Masakali 2.0 below:
All songs written for #Delhi6 including #Masakali close to heart,sad to see when original creation of @arrahman @prasoonjoshi_ &singer @_MohitChauhan insensitively utilised. Upto the conscience of @Tseries. Hopefully the fans will stand for originality. @RakeyshOmMehra— Prasoon Joshi (@prasoonjoshi_) April 8, 2020
