Jhoome Jo Pathaan song seems copied from this animated film

Pathaan Movie, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, on December 22 released song ‘Jhoome Jo Pathan’, the song created controversy soon after its release.

After the release of the song ‘Jhoome Jo Pathan’ by Vishal-Shekhar for the movie Pathaan starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, some vigilant social media users compared it to a song titled ‘Karam Ki Talwar’ from the animated film Arjun: The Warrior Prince (2012).

They pointed out that the composition of Vishal-Shekhar appears to be a copy of the old song. The song is sung by Arijit Singh, Vishal, and Sheykhar, while Sukriti Kakar lends her vocals to the female parts, and Kumaar has written the lyrics.

The dance track has been released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu and features a beefed-up SRK. The Hindi version alone has garnered almost 2 crore views on Yash Raj Film’s YouTube channel.

Several social media users accused music composers Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani (Sheykhar) of plagiarizing the music from a 2012 song, ‘Karam Ki Talvaar’, from UTV Films’ Arjun: The Warrior Prince.

The similarities between the two songs were striking, leading many to believe that the composers had copied the old song.

Netizens reaction

A user wrote “And yet made loads of money without any legal issues. That’s genius 👍🏼”

Another user wrote ‘Is there any shame left in #Bollywood. The only solution is #BoycottBollywood and save our #Indian culture, women and children. #Bollywood is #loveJihad supporter.”

Earlier, the song ‘Besharam Rang’ was embroiled in a similar controversy when numerous social media users accused it of being a copy of French singer-songwriter Jain’s indie song ‘Makeba’, which has a sensual tone.

In response to the allegations, one of the singers of ‘Besharam Rang’, Caralisa Monteiro, stated that Vishal and Sheykhar are known for their original compositions and it’s natural for artists to draw inspiration from various sources.
