Bollywood continues to plagiarise Pakistani music, and most recently, they did the same with the blockbuster song Laree Choote by the Call band. The chorus of the Pakistani music is eerily similar to the song Kesariya from the upcoming Bollywood film Brahmastra.
It is important to note that the Bollywood movie Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’s soundtrack is Laree Choote. In the music video, actors Neha Dhupia and Abhay Deol appear. Social media users noticed how much the music resembled the hit song by the band Call. They attacked the creators for being unoriginal.
It is important to note that the Bollywood movie JugJugg Jeeyo caused controversy when the song Nach Punjaban by singer Abrar-ul-Haq was included in the trailer. After the trailer with the song featured went viral on social media, the artist blasted Karan Johar.
“I have not sold my song Nach Punjaban to any Indian movie and reserve the rights to go to court to claim damages,” he tweeted. “Producers like Karan Johar should not use copy songs. This is my sixth song being copied which will not be allowed at all.”
When a UK-based record label named “Movie Box” became involved and asserted that the song was licensed by them to be included in the film, the movie’s creators refuted his charges.
Abrar-ul-Haq was acknowledged in the official music video for his song. He was given credit for the song’s lyrics and musical creation. He then declared that he will file a lawsuit against T-Series and Karan Johar for utilising his song in the upcoming film JugJugg Jeeyo.
