' Its the time of remakes! Indian film 'CREW' is taking on popular Bollywood bangers - one at a time!

The traumatising grunts, sighs, and moans of the 90s have been revamped for the 2024 film CREW, the team behind which just showcased the remake of the iconic song, '' Choli ke Peeche ''.

One might wonder - how can The Madhuri Dixit, gracefully catering to the problematic male gaze with her innocence intact, despite lip-syncing a highly suggestive song, be topped or even matched?

The answer, however, seems to come in the form of a superstar who is, quite literally, an icon of our times. Kareena Kapoor Khan - our ''Rihanna and Beyonce'' as per Diljit Dosanjh - prominently becomes the main attraction, whilst some clips from the movie are interspersed throughout the YouTube version.

Clad in pink, Kareena takes on the monumental task of paying homage to Madhuri. But Bebe is as Bebe does. Striking, sensual and exuding all things Masala, Kareena delivers and how.

However, there's another factor that makes the song work : Diljit.

The sensuality of the song has been turned down a notch, with the vibe lending itself to a more playful and flirtatious mood, as opposed to in-your-face sultriness of the original.

This works, as Diljit's vocals find their sweet spot, taking over and intertwining with traces of the memorable track in perfect harmony.

The revamped version respects the classic while understanding that it has a more modern audience to which it has to cater. Walking this tightrope, the team fuses the potpourri of talent to create the updated version, which is sure to become a hit dance number.

One only wishes it had been released closer to the wedding season.
