Bhushan Kumar dares Abhijeet, says he does not have rights to the Housefull song

This newspaper had reported that singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya has filed a case in the Mumbai High Court against Housefull 2 producer Sajid Nadiadwala, music composers Sajid-Wajid and T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar for allegedly lifting a tune from his music album Tere Bina and using it in the sequel to Housefull.
Abhijeet claims the tune in Do you know from Housefull 2 is a rip-off of one of his songs from Tere Bina called Mujhe kanhaiya kaha karo. Even with Housefull 2 releasing this Friday, Abhijeet is hell bent on taking the team to court for alleged infringement of copyright.
Interestingly though, there is a twist in the tale, as Mirror can now tell you. Incidentally, T-Series has copyrights of the same album Abhijeet is talking about.
Bhushan Kumar thundered, “I think yeh bevkoofi wali baat hai. The song Mujhe kanahiya kaha karo from Tere Bina is with T-series so I have the right to give it to anyone I want to, and in any format. There have been many examples in the recent past where I have given songs like Hawa Hawai to Shaitan, Oye Oye to Double Dhamaal etc. No music director has come up and claimed copyright. We are the copyright owners of all these songs. First of all there is no similarity between Abhijeet’s song and the Housefull 2 song and even if he feels there is, I have the rights, so there is no question of him claiming More >
