Chahat Fateh Ali Khan’s 'Bado Badi' taken down by YouTube

Pakistani singer and internet sensation Chahat Fateh Ali Khan's song Bado Badi recently took social media by storm by its peculiar singing style and eccentric music video. However, the song has now been removed from YouTube due to a copyright infringement strike, leaving many wondering what went wrong.

Bado Badi, which also features model Wajdan Rao, quickly became a favourite among netizens. The song's oddities led to a flood of memes and viral content on platforms like Instagram and TikTok. Celebrities from both, India and Pakistan joined in on the trend, further boosting the song's popularity.

Despite amassing an impressive 28 million views in just a month, the song's success was short-lived. Interestingly, Bado Badi is not an entirely new creation. The song was originally performed by the legendary Madam Noor Jahan for the 1973 film Banarsi Thug. A report from Deccan Herald indicates that the composition of Bado Badi bore a striking “resemblance” to Noor Jehan’s hit. This similarity resulted in a copyright infringement claim, prompting YouTube to take down the video.
