There are no doubts that Dilbar Dilbar song from Sirf Tum (1999) featuring Sushmita Sen will always remain one of the most iconic songs in the history of Bollywood. The remix version of Dilbar Dilbar from John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate has also struck the right chord with the audience who loved Nora Fatehi stepping into the shoes of the Miss Universe 1994.
After watching the new Dilbar Dilbar rendition, many people missed watching Sushmita shake a leg on it. They also felt that a vital portion (sargam) from the original song was missing in the reprised version which turned out to be their biggest disappointment. However, people loved the song and it has become one of the top chartbusters of 2018.
Sushmita Sen, who stole millions of hearts with her unmatched sensuality and impressive dance moves, opened about how she felt when she heard the new Dilbar Dilbar song and was all praises for the budding belly dancing queen Nora Fatehi.
"Nora was absolutely fantastic in it and my favourite part of this song are the first two lines, which they added (in the revamped version) and is very well done. The remix is also very well done," Sushmita was quoted as saying during a media interaction on the sidelines of a recent fashion show in Mumbai.
However, the original version of Dilbar Dilbar is still her favourite like the rest of music lovers and her die-hard fans.
"Nora has absolutely killed it but I still like the original version more," she added.
Dilbar Dilbar featuring Nora Fatehi and John Abraham has been breaking records since its release on July 3. It garnered over 10 million views in just 24 hours and went on to become the no.1 hit on India's YouTube charts. It had also found its place on the Global YouTube Charts, leaving behind songs like Girls Like You by Maroon 5 and X by Nicki Minaj.
