The chartbuster 'Pasoori', which was first recorded by Paskitani singers Ali Sethi and Shae Gill, is not just a hit in India or the neighbouring country, but across the globe. Such is the popularity that the song has now been remade as 'Pasoori Nu' in the upcoming film, 'Satyaprem Ki Katha'.
However, the move failed to impress the netizens, who are of the opinion that the iconic number should not be tampered with. However, this is not the first time that 'Pasoori' has been remade.
Not many know, but the first time 'Pasoori' was remade was not in India, but instead, it was in Africa.

Yes, you read that right! A remix rendition of 'Pasoori' was performed at Coke Studio Africa by Marwan Moussa, Reekado Banks, and none other than Ali Sethi himself.
The Pakistani singer was seen sharing the stage with Moussa and Banks in the music video, titled 'Pasoori Remix', which was released in 2022.
