15 Famous Bollywood Songs That Are Copied

We all have grown up listening and grooving to some really great Bollywood songs. The lyrics, music, vibe, everything screams Bollywood. But what if we tell you some of your favourite songs are copied and not original? You will be disappointed and so were we. But Bollywood did its best to hide this fact as either the songs copied were from a long time back or just not that famous, at least in India. Here is a list of some famous Bollywood songs that are copied:

1. Pehli Nazar From Race

Our favorite Atif Aslam song is actually copied from a Korean Song ‘Sarang Hae You’ sung by Kim Hyung Su in 2005 and Pehli Nazar came out in 2008!

2. Zaalima From Raees

This great number from Shah Rukh’s movie Raees is a copy of ‘ Eyes, Nose, Lips’ by Korean singer Taeyang in 2014. Zaalima released in 2017.

3. Dhoom Machale From Dhoom

This peppy song is actually inspired from Mario Takes A Walk by Jesse Cook. Guess our childhood was not that awesome.

4. Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye From Jurm

One of the best yesteryear’s songs is also copied. The original song is Five Hundred Miles by Peter, Paul and Mary in 1961. Jurm was released in 1990.

5. Bhool Bhulaiya Title Track

The title track of Bhool Bhulaiya of 2007 was copied from My Lecon by JTL in 2001. Guess K-pop fans existed way back in India!

6. Pal Pal From Lage Raho Munna Bhai

This beautiful song released in 2006 is actually copied from a 1961 song Theme For A Dream by Cliff Richard.

7. Dheere Dheere From Aashiqui

We hate to say but this 1990 superhit song is originally copied from Come Into My Life by Joyce Sims in the 1980s. Why Bollywood? Why?

8. Koi Mil Gaya from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

We already hate this list but even this is a copied song. Inspired by Take That Look Off Your Face by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1980. KKHH was released in 1998.

9. Babuji Dheere Chalna From Aar Paar

This groovy number from yesteryear Bollywood is inspired by Doris Day’s “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” which is actually an English cover of the Spanish song from 1940s Quizás, Quizás, Quizás.

10. Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai From Gangster

This soulful song is not ours. This song is inspired by Sacral Nirvana by Oliver Shanti and Friends.

11. Bulleya From Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Even this is copied! A song by Papa Roach called Last Resort is what inspired Bulleya.

12. Mehbooba Mehbooba – Sholay

Leave us something Bollywood! This is copied from Say You Love Me by Demis Roussos which was released in 1974. Mehbooba came out in 1975!

13. Mera Mulk Mera Desh Mera Ye Watan – Diljale

This 1996 song is copied from Israel’s National Anthem!!!
