We have often read stories about music directors being accused of copying tunes without giving credit to the original source. Now, a shocking Twitter thread has cropped up on the internet where one can see the list of Bollywood tunes copied from tracks produced by other artists.
A user, who goes by the name of Sahil Adhikari, has shared this thread on his Twitter handle which reads, ‘Thread of all the Bollywood tunes that are copied from songs of foreign artists’. The first song in the list is Neend Churayi Meri from the 1997 hit film Ishq starring Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Ajay Devgn and Kajol in lead roles. The original source of the tunes is said to be copied from 'Sending all my love by Linear’.
