Singer and music composer Shankar Mahadevan too, was excited to see the advert. Why, you ask? Well, to begin with, he sang for the track back in 1994 and the new version too has the same track that was used 27 years ago. Sharing the ad on his Instagram profile, Shankar Mahadevan wrote in his caption: “After 27 years it is back! The roles are reversed! The company has decided to retain the same song that I had had recorded then in 1994.” He signed off the post with, “Nostalgiaaaa.”

The comments section of Shankar Mahadevan’s post was filled up with comments. Singer Harshdeep Kaur wrote: “Wow! Brought back all the old memories.” Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra commented: “My my… Wow.” Another comment from a fan read: “Best, best, best.” Another Instagram user added, “legendary.” Another comment read, “Nostalgia on another level.”
