Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya Sticks To His Guns


Indian Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya

Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya is sticking to his guns about his court case against the Housefull 2 music team for allegedly copying his composition Mujhe Kanhaiya kahaa karo’s theme music in the film’s track Mujhe tumse mohabbat hui hai.

The court case caused producer Sajid Nadiadwala to miss the world premiere of his film in Singapore last week. Say composers Sajid-Wajid on a note of unity, "Abhijeett is just being petty and publicity-hungry. Music is created from the same 12 notes and if some small portion is coincidentally similar, it does not mean that it is a copy or was intended to be one. Abhijeet agrees that the tune is not a copy, only a part of the music, which uses the chromatic scale that is common, is to hundreds of songs.”

        While Sajid Nadiadwala, the producer for whom Abhijeet sang hits like Chalti hai kya nau se gyarah inJudwaa, remained unavailable for comment, Bhushan Kumar of T. Series has already stated that he possesses the rights of Mujhe Kanhaiya kahaa karo and Abhijeet’s stand would mean nothing even if Abhijeet’s claim had been correct. However, the singer reiterated that he had never been after stopping the film’s asked me for permission. I have sung for Sajid-Wajid and would have gladly given my consent to use the music. They should apologize. I am fighting the matter on principle, otherwise such rampant plagiarisations will never stop.”

         He dismissed the composer’s claims that the music scale was common to so many songs. "They have stolen a pumpkin and claim to have robbed a single chilly! Five chords have made this music and that piece is the backbone of their song and mine. Without that music, the rest of the song does not work! In addition, they have used my music over 30 times already. You can check out both the songs on the Net!”

         Says Wajid tersely, "At this rate, all composers will have to stop creating music! We don’t even want to say anything more!” Counters Abhijeet says, "Music is created from the same 12 notes and if some small portion is coincidentally similar, it is a copy or was intended to be one. Abhijeet agrees that the tune is not a copy, only a part of the music, which uses the chromatic scale that is common to hundreds of songs.”

Series has already stated that he possesses the rights of Mujhe Kanhaiya kahaa karo and Abhijeet’s claim had been correct. However, the singer reiterated that he had never been after stopping the film’s release, being given money or even credit. "All I thought was that they should have chords have made this music and that piece is the backbone of their song and mine. Without that music, the rest of the song does not work! And they have used my music over 30 times already. You can check out both the songs on the’Net!”

Says wajid tersely, "At this rate, all composers will have to stop creating music! We don’t even want to say anything more!” Counters Abhijeet, "I am a small man fighting big names. But what is right is right!”
