Lata on Atif Aslam's version of 'Chalte Chalte' -The Asian Age


For those who revere Lata Mangeshkar's "Chalte chalte yuhi koi mil gaya tha", the mellow 'mujra' melody composed by the great Ghulam Mohammed for the mythic Meena Kumaris swan song in Pakeezah, the new version of the song by Pakistan singer Atif Aslam for a Bollywood film titled Mitron, is a shocker.

It takes the delicate notes of the original tune, wrenches them out of context and leaves us with a spill-over version of the original which no one can identify as the memorabilia from Pakeezah, except those responsible for this duplication. And the composition is credited to Tanishk Bagchi.
