Nora Fatehi in the recreated item song O Saki Saki from John Abraham's upcoming film Batla House is making waves. The song was featured in 2004 film Musafir and actress Koena Mitra was featured in the original track. The new version recreated by Tanishk Bagchi and sung by Tulsi Kumar and Neha Kakar was criticised by Koena who when the song dropped, she tweeted, "My song from Musafir #Saaki Saaki" has been recreated. Sunidhi, Sukhwinder, 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 in her recent interview was asked about Koena's criticism and she said, "I don't think it's really criticism, everyone's entitled to an opinion and you have to respect that. At the end of the day, we are discussing music, which is very subjective. Everyone will not like the same genre or style of music, right? Personally, I set a benchmark with Dilbar and I have to work towards surpassing it. After that, it's for the audience to decide if they like you or not."

Not only Koena but even Sanjay Dutt who played the lead role in the 2004 Musafir and who was also a part of the original song, reacted on the remake. But he gave a thumbs up about the remake, as he tweeted, "It's great that these songs are being recreated, it means that they are still popular. It's a good thing."

Nora in O Saki Saki has not only received a lot of praises but the song has also hit 20 million views on YouTube. Nora who was seen playing with fire in the new O Saki Saki stated that it was a dream to be a part of the remix. She said, "The way Tanishk has composed this song is out of this world and I knew visually I'll have to match up. I learned to dance with fire fans for the first time within only 3 days, and I must say it was extremely challenging."

Talking about her character in Batla House she said, "The best part is I am acting in the film Batla House, so my character's performance to the song O Saki Saki in the film leads up to a very important sequence of events that carries the story forward. I am very grateful to Nikkhil Advani sir, Bhushan Kumar sir, John Abraham, T-series and Emmay Entertainment for giving me this opportunity."
