Katrina Kaif’s Kala Chasma, Alia Bhatt’s Samjhawan: 5 evergreen songs that made a comeback in Bollywood

These popular numbers from the past have made their way back and that too with a bang.

Seems like Bollywood is tired of remaking old movie songs and instead shifted their focus on the independent album songs that were quite popular during the 90s. With Kala Chasma from Baar Baar Dekho starring Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra being the latest one to follow the trend, we took a look at songs that were hugely inspired by old numbers and had a remake. The newer versions are definitely fun, more peppy and refreshing. ‘Kala Chasma’ is a remake of popular song by Hassan Maqsood which was released way back in 2000.
