Anu has been accused of plagiarizing songs on numerous occasions. Tunes such as Dil Mera Churaya Kyun, Kaho Na Kaho, Neend Churayi Meri, and Nasha Ye Pyar Ka Nasha appear to be ‘inspired’ by foreign songs. The music composer has grabbed headlines on multiple occasions for blatantly plagiarizing popular songs from Egypt, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Italy.
