“Sadak 2 Song Is Copied From My Composition,” Claims Pak Musician Sharing Video Proof


Every once in a while, the Bollywood music industry takes inspiration from sources such as regional songs or western beats to create a hit track. However, people often figure out the origin behind such blatant copies. Like, recently, when the trailer for Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Sadak 2’, was released, music producer Shezan Saleem aka JO-G claimed that a song playing in the background was copied from a 2011 composition produced by him in Pakistan.

The song in question is ‘Ishq Kamaal’ which is a part of the trailer for the Mahesh Bhatt directed movie. JO-G felt that the song sounded quite identical to his composition and hence shared a tweet pointing out the similarities between the two songs, reports HT. Hours after the release of the trailer, he shared a video, playing portions from both the songs to prove his point.

The producer further revealed that Mahesh Bhatt had visited his house in Karachi back in 2005 and picked up a few of his songs.

He also requested people to help him spread the word about the blatant copy without due credits:

Ironically, Pooja Bhatt, who is also a part of the film, had previously tweeted that they will introduce fresh music talent:

Well, while taking inspiration for music is a common phenomenon, it’s important that due credit is given where required. What do you think? Tell us!
