‘O Saki Saki Re’, the second song from Batla House is a straight-up ‘super hit dance number’ featuring Nora Fatehi and her killer dance moves. Great dance but average music makes Koena Mitra’s fears come true.
The Bollywood’s obsession with old hits continues as ‘O Saki Saki’ from 2004 fit ‘Musafir’ makes a fresh comeback in soon-to-be-released ‘Batla House’ featuring Nora Fatehi. The original song had actress Koena Mitra’ and Sanjay Dutt aka ‘Musa Bhai’ grove to the club tunes. The reprise version sees Nora setting the screen on fire with her fire play and unbelievably hot belly dance.
Nora had been teasing her fans with glimpses from the song which finally came out yesterday. Since then, the YouTube video of the song has garnered 19 Million views on the T-Series YouTube channel.
Claiming it to be the ‘dance anthem of the year’ the makers have immense pride in the overall outcome. The Batla House song ‘Saki Saki’ has been sung by melodious Neha Kakkar, B Praak and Tulsi Kumar, composed and written by Tanishk Bagchi.
The lyrics and tunes have been reworked, borrowing only a few lines from the original version that featured Koena and Sanjay Dutt.
However, actress Koena Mitra seems highly disappointed with the remake of the iconic song. She called it a complete ‘mess’ even before its official release. She also added that Nora is the ‘only saving grace’ about the song. She tweeted her emotions the other day.
My song from Musafir #Saaki Saaki" has been recreated.
Sunidhi, Suhwinder, Vishal, Shekhar combination was outstanding. Didn't like the new version, it's a mess! This song had crashed many blockbusters! Why batlahouse, why?
P. S: Nora is a stunner. Hope she saves our pride.

Nora has genuinely given her heart and soul in the filming of this song. The moves, backbends, fire play and belly dancing don’t come easy. However, she does it like the pro that she is. The film Batla House will hit the theatres on 15 August 2019, alongside Mission Mangal and Saaho.
