Sadak 2’s trailer track accused of plagiarising Pakistani song


It’s hard to be original in this day and age, but some artists frequently cross the line from "being inspired by another musician" to "blatantly ripping them off." And it happens all the time – you probably just haven't noticed. Although many of these artists get slapped with lawsuits, due to the finicky nature of copyright law, most cases are thrown out or settled out of court. At the end of the day, the best way to judge certain songs and determine if they were in fact plagiarised is to listen to the similarities yourself. And that’s what Shezan Saleem, a Pakistani musician, did. After listening to the recently released trailer track of upcoming Bollywood movie Sadak 2, Saleem tweeted a video playing both his composition from 2011 for Rabba Ho by Zaid Khan and Sadak 2’s trailer track Ishq Kamaal and wrote, “What do we do about this. Copied from a song that I produced in Pakistan and launched in 2011. Let's talk guys.”
