The composer recently took to Twitter to crowd source the lyrics and what emerged was a new song with references to demonetisation and US President-elect Donald Trump. “The most beautiful thing about art is that it belongs to everyone and crowd sourcing is a great way to get newer audiences to connect,” Rahman said in a statement.

“It was a fabulous experience and what we’ve got is some interesting stuff filled with references to current events which is just as vibrant as the original one,” he said.
