Indian music producers go to lengths and lengths in composing a new song but not in a creative aspect and more in a geographical sense. Another day another hit Pakistani number gets ruined by India. Bollywood’s upcoming ‘Bhuj’ The Pride of India is set in 1971 with a song that has all the ethos of the 90s that seems shocking. The latest track from Abhishek Dudhaiya’s directorial features Nora Fatehi’s sensuous spy waves is actually ripped from legendary Madam Noorjehan‘s iconic song ‘Zaalima Coca-Cola Pila De‘.
The original song was sung by Madam in 1986 for the Punjabi film ‘Chan Te Soorma’
In 2016 the song was reprised by Meesha Shafi and Umair Jaswal
Now in 2021, the latest version is sung by Bollywood singer Shreya Ghoshal
Due to the Indo-Pak tension, Bollywood over the years has imposed a strict ban on anything
Pakistani. Then why didn’t they show no qualms in copying an iconic Pakistani Song? Not just that it is being dubbed as ‘the party song of the year’.

Many loved Shreya Ghoshal’s voice coupled with Nora’s dance moves, some Twitterati’s are expressing their anger that Bollywood hasn’t given the original due credits to Pakistan.
