It is raining remixes in Bollywood. The latest song to have been reprised is Keh Doon Tumhe which has been featured in Ajay Devgn’s upcoming movie Baadshaho.
The song features Esha Gupta and Emraan Hashmi. However, now the makers have decided to remove the song from the film.
According to a report in a leading tabloid, Bombay High Court yesterday passed a judgement in favour of filmmaker Rajiv Rai who had filed a case against Bhushan Kumar’s music company for recreating the original song from Deewar.
Rai’s Trimurthi Films own the copyright of the song and lyrics of the original song ‘Keh Doon Tumhe’ composed by RD Burman and penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. A leading tabloid quoted Rajiv Rai say, “When you make a song, you sometimes give the remix rights to the music company. But, in this case, we had not given the rights to Polydor. So when T-Series took the remix rights from Universal, the company told them categorically that if Trimurti Films sues them, they will have to fight it out. It’s not just a fight for me, but for all producers in Bollywood.”
Confirming the same, Bhushan Kumar said, ” “We’ve always bought recreation rights from the respective music companies. This is the first time that the rights were fractured. We have dropped the song from the movie and pulled it down from all networks.”
