Anu Malik, one of Bollywood's popular music composers, has made enough headlines over the years, for his debatable virtue of candor. Another time, added to countless other occasions, the composer has not shied away from voicing his opinions.
Reportedly, the man is unhappy with fellow music composer, Pritam Chakraborty. He states (and accuses) that Pritam's latest ripple creating instant hit, 'Character Dheela Hai', filming Salman-Zareen, is a rip off of Malik's older composition, 'Mohabbat Naam Hai Kiska', from Ajnabee.
Malik has stated that the entire tempo and tune of the song is a carbon copy of his own composition. What's ironic is that Anu Malik had already congratulated film Ready's director Aneez Bazmee for this musical success, before realizing he was in fact lauding his own work. So certain and serious is he about the matter, that Malik plans to seek legal involvement, if rights are not credited/restored to him otherwise.
In the momentum of his tirade against plagiarism, he went on to express his disapproval of Pritam's recent contemporary adaptation of old classic 'Dum Maro Dum', emphasizing how the latter had failed to accredit the legendary R.D Burman for the original.
Quite honestly, we at BollyCurry are a little unsympathetic of Anu Malik's allegation. Isn't this the man who beats all drums in favor of creative 'inspirations'?!
Well, dear Mr. Malik seems to conveniently forget what people famously say about the infamous Karma, doesn't he?!
