New Delhi : Ajay Devgn's latest movie 'Total Dhamaal' released in the theatres on Friday. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Riteish Deshmukh, Johnny Lever, Arshad Warsi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Boman Irani, Sanjay Mishra and Esha Gupta in key roles.
Recently, the film's song 'Mungda' was under a huge controversy after it received flak from the legendary singers for its remix version.
Lata Mangeshkar was also among the ones who did not like the song and she reacted to Bollywood’s lack of originality. Hearing about Lata Mangeshkar's comment, Ajay Devgn said that 'she can slap us if she wants'.
Talking to a news daily, he said, "Lataji is very senior. I think a lot of people recreate songs and they don’t think like this. So, if she has gotten upset about it, she can come and slap us also. She has got all the rights to do so. I mean, it’s a fact, she can shout at us also. We’re ready to apologise if she has felt bad about something."
The original version of the song was sung by Usha Mangeshkar.
