New Delhi: The new age filmmakers` love for retro songs seems to be getting stronger as the popular song `Raat akeli hai` from 1971 hit `Jewel Thief` will feature in Ekta Kapoor`s latest film `Ragini MMS`.

The track composed by late music composer S.D. Burman was picturised on yesteryears` stars Dev Anand and Tanuja and was sung by Asha Bhosle.

However, unlike other filmmakers, Ekta has decided to feature the original track rather than a remixed version.

"Some classic tunes should just not be touched. They should be enjoyed in their purest authentic form. `Raat akeli hai` is sexy enough in its original form and goes very well with the mood of `Ragini MMS`," Ekta said in a statement.

Some of the new films featuring the remixed version of yesteryears` songs are "Pyaar do pyaar lo" in "Thank You", "Dum maaro dum" in Abhishek Bachchan-starrer "Dum Maaro Dum" and "Laila o laila" in Lara Dutta`s first production venture "Challo Dilli".
