Baaghi 2 released the song remake look and a promo of Ek Do Teen, featuring Jacqueline Fernandez. The photograph was released in the morning, and Jacqueline was seen in a more stylized dress that had been worn by Madhuri Dixit in Tezaab. The song, which featured in the movie, was an instant hit for its unique lyrics, Alka Yaglik’s voice and most of all, Madhuri’s graceful performance that made her the female heartthrob of the nation and was crucial in her popularity for her years. It’s also one of the most iconic songs of Bollywood. This all means that Jacqueline was always going to be compared with Madhuri, but after seeing the first look and the promo, it seems that people on social media are going to be a little more scathing in their criticism about the song and the performer.
Many on twitter have commented that the director seems to have vulgarized a graceful song, with suggestive steps which make it more overtly sexual. Others have also comments about the dress worn by Jacqueline, which has basically the same colors as Madhuri’s, but looks like it was made to amp up the sex appeal of the actress.
There is nothing wrong if an actress appears sexy in a song, but fans don’t really like when their favorite songs, and which feature a legendary actress like Madhuri Dixit are remade only to be shown in a different manner than the original since, if it doesn’t add anything to the song, its only made for the profit of the movie and seems cynical. Here is what people are saying about the song:

Am I the only one who feels that
the remake of #EkDoTeen transformed the song from a beautiful one to a vulgar one ???
No one can dance like #MadhuriDixit
& I don't think it's a decent way to pay a tribute to an amazing dancer like Madhuri #JustSaying

No no no no just no. Jacqueline cannot be doing a remake of #EkDoTeen nobody can do it the way Madhuri did!

That Ek Do Teen remake looks more like a Chikni Chameli remake.

Sigh. I completely agree with you. WHY. I mean WHY even touch Ek Do Teen! I rather have Madhuri Dixit, at her current age, dancing to it all over again.
