If being the most disliked Bollywood trailer in recent history wasn’t a feat Sadak 2 would be known for, perhaps the latest controversy will – especially in Pakistan! Adding on to the already flared up hate against the upcoming sequel to a classic Indian film, the latest news claims that a song for the film has been lifted from a Pakistani soundtrack!
Taking to Facebook, music producer Shehzan Saleem – who is better known as Jo-G, and is the son of veteran singer Saleem Javed, claimed that the Mahesh Bhatt directorial starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt, and Sanjay Dutt has copied a song that he had composed for a singer named Zaid Khan in 2011.
“So finally apka bhai is level par agaya hai ke uska music produce kya hua gana from 2011, Bollywood main copy hua hai. Music bhi same,” Jo-G wrote on his post.
The so-called new soundtrack titled ‘Ishq Kamal’ for the film features a soulful tune, that Jo-G was quick to realise was in fact, something he had created with the Zaid’s debut music video titled ‘Rabba Ho.’
The video goes on to compare and contrast the two and points out that each and every thing about the tune and composition has been stolen from his project.
The Indian copied ‘version’ of Jo-G’s song has been created by a team that includes names like Jeet Gannguli, Ankit Tiwari, Samidh Mukherjee, Urvi and Suniljeet, along with lyricists such as Rashmi Virag, Vijay Vijawatt, Shabbir Ahmed, Suniljeet and Shalu Vaish, which raise a question of authenticity in Bollywood.
