Not just Mera Mulk Mera Desh; check out top 5 songs starring SRK, Madhuri Dixit copied by Anu Malik
Music composer Anu Malik is receiving a lot of flak after it was exposed that he copied the music for the song Mera Mulk Mera Desh from the Israeli national anthem. What makes it slightly hilarious is that this big revelation was known during the ongoing Tokyo Olympics where women athletes are making India proud. While Israel’s national anthem was being played during one of the matches, Twitter was quick to join the dots and call out Anu Malik for the same. It is well known that Anu Malik has been ‘inspired’ by a lot of international music, most lesser-known while composing Hindi songs. But did you know, that many of the music and songs that you enjoy from the 90s, composed by Anu Malik, are a total rip-off as well?
Are you someone who cannot stop dancing to Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhein from Baazigar? Well, don’t be surprised if we tell you that the song featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol is also a copy of a French song Yeke Yeke by artist Mory Kanté.
Not just that, the beautiful and foot-tapping beats to Madhuri Dixit‘s song Mera Piya Ghar Aaya is also lifted from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s song from 1992.
This Aamir Khan starrer song Raja Ko Rani Se Pyaar Ho Gaya (Akele Hum Akele Tum) is perhaps one of the most beautiful melodies from the 90s. But, let us acknowledge that the music was lifted from the Italian movie The Godfather (1972) by the artist Nino Rota. Another song from the same movie titled Dil Mera Churaya Kyun is also a rip-off English song from the album Ellen’s The Only Holiday Album You’ll Ever Need by the artist George Michael.
Bobby Deol starrer Soldier’s title song, which you perhaps cannot stop getting nostalgic about, has also been lifted. The music has been inspired by a 1985 English album Let’s Talk About Love by artist Modern Talking.
Not just that the famous song Neend Churayi Meri which also got a remake recently was also copied from an English album from 1990 titled Linear.
Honestly, getting inspired by music from around the world is no crime but not crediting them surely is. Tell us if you agree with us.
