Bollywood Tracks That Are Directly Copied From International Music

Did you know, Christopher Nolan co-wrote Aamir Khan Starrer, Ghajini? Well, that doesn’t quite add up. Actually, Ghajini was a remake of a Tamil movie, sharing the same name which was in turn a barefaced rip off of Christopher Nolan’s Memento!

That’s like steal-ception!

 

We always knew how most Bollywood movies were a copy of South Indian or Hollywood movies but have you ever wondered how many Hindi/Punjabi songs have been ‘inspired’ from the dance music community present abroad?

 

With the following list we help you count 5 songs which we wish were never made:

 

 

1. Song: Kunal Ganjawala – World Hold On World Hold On (Mission Istaanbul)

 

 

 

Original: Bob Sinclar – World Hold On

 

 

 

I’m not sure if I should feel sorry for Kunal Ganjawala’s horrendous attempt to cover this classic with nonsense lyrics or Zayed Khan’s ridiculous dance moves.

 

2. Song: Lil John Feat. Manj Musik – Turn Down For What

 

 

Original: DJ Snake, Lil Jon – Turn Down for What

 

 

Hmmm.. Hogaya aapka?

 

3. Song: Diljit Dosanjh Feat. DJ Frenzy – Lean On

 

 

Original: Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØ – Lean On

 

 

From where do they come up with this stuff?

 

4. Song: Himesh Reshmmiya, Irrfan Khan and Neeti Mohan – Theme of Xposé

 

 

Original: Dillon Francis – Brazzer’s Theme (Munchi’s Fuck That It’s Bangbros Remix)

 

 

 

It’s amusing how Himesh Bhai always adds his unique touch even to his copied songs.

 

5. Song: MANJ Musik Feat. Raftaar – Fukra Flow

 

 

 

 

Original: Dillon Francis and DJ Snake – Get Low

 

 

Tumse na hopayega.
