Sadak 2 Plagiarism Row, Pooja Bhatt & Composer React

There seems  to be  no end  to the  troubles  for Mahesh Bhatt’s  Sadak 2 . After the boycott banshee blaring across the social media, the film is now  in the midst of a plagiarism controversy with a Pakistani musician claiming one of  the songs in Sadak 2 is copied.

Wrote Pakistan’s  music  producer Shezaan Saleem.  “A trailer for a Bollywood movie called Sadak 2 has just been released, and there is a song in it called Ishq Kamaal,” he can be heard saying. “After listening to it, I realised that it sounds like a composition I had produced for a friend around 11 years ago. The friend’s name is Zaid Khan. I think they’ve copied it because not only the melody but the music is also very similar.”

I touched base  with  Sadak producer Pooja Bhatt and she said, “If you hear the two songs it’s quite clear that our song is not anything like the  other song.”

Sadak 2 composer  Suniljit  also reverted with  a terse  but  unambiguous  response. “Hear my song. You will have the  answer  to your question.”
