Kaifi Khalil’s iconic song Kahani Suno was originally released in 2021 and is still one of the most popular tracks even in 2023. The song has made it to the top of the global music video list on YouTube. Pakistani stars like Aima Baig, Bilal Saeed and Fahad Mustafa have shared their version of Kahani Suno 2.0. Not just that, it has gained global recognition mainly in India where many actors have been sharing their videos while grooving to Khalil’s songs. However, not all the renditions have turned out to be successful.
Bollywood has a history of stealing foreign ideas without giving them due credit. Recently Jubin Nautiyal’s rendition of Kahani Suno received flak and was brutally trolled on social media. Nautiyal, who is well known for ripping off Pakistani music, posted a video of himself singing “Kahani Suno 2”. The song lacked the soft and mellow tone of Kahani Suno. There wasn’t any depth and the emotions of the original composition were clearly missing.
Moreover, singer-turned-actor AyushmannKhurrana also sang his version of KahaniSuno. Guess what” It was also out rightly rejected by Kaifi fans.They took to social media platforms to express their distaste.
