Agent Vinod is in the headlines for an alleged copycat song. The tune in question is “Pyaar Ki Pungi” and everyone is having their doubts about this production.
The first song that bears resemblance to this song is Hassan Jahangir’s “Hawa Hawa Khushboo Luta De.” These rumors and comparisons have been circulating for quite a while.
Now the band Barobax, from Tehran, recognizes their 2010 single “Soosan Khanoom” in “Pyaar Ki Pungi.” Co-Producer Dinesh Vijan is taking the allegations down by saying, “There is no infringement of copyright or any other right. And any attempt to initiate proceedings for alleged infringement of copyright is ill-conceived, ill-advised and untenable by law. Any action in this regard will be vigorously opposed and resisted in accordance with the law.” This is not the first time music director Pritam has been put in the hot seat, but guess what, it doesn’t end there!
The latest buzz from Bollywood is that “Pyaar Ki Pungi” was not even created for Agent Vinod. Apparently, the song was recorded for the Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone film for Dharma Productions titled Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.
All I can say is…what a mess!
