Disha Patani grooved to the remixed version of Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein from Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s film Baazigar (1993). Moreover, this song is the title track of Netflix’s new web series Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein.
In the video, Disha can be seen speaking a line from the show, “Humare friend banoge?” Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein features celebs such as Tahir Raj Bhasin, Shweta Tripathi, and Anchal Singh in the lead roles.
Meanwhile, sharing the video, Netflix India captioned the post, “Can’t keep calm because the Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein dance mix is here. Come take this groovy challenge with us!”
To this, netizens took a dig at the makers and Disha after watching the video. As someone commented, “Remix karke saara gaana kharab kardiya.” Another one wrote, “Yet another iconic song destroyed. The worst era of Bollywood music which lacks creative and soothing lyrics.” Another person said, “Why! My favourite SRK-Kajol song is ruined now. I can’t…”
However, Disha told news agency ANI about the song, “I’m a fan of 90s thrillers – the pulp, the catchy music, the drama and the action – they are complete entertainers that keep you hooked. Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein takes inspiration from these! When I heard that Netflix is also coming out with a new rendition of the iconic song, I was super thrilled to listen to it.”
The actress also stated, “It was a lot of fun performing this reimagined version! We are all very excited to kickstart the #YKKAGroove Instagram Reels Challenge and I cannot wait to see what the fans are going to do with the challenge to make it their own!”
