Pasoori song remake: Pak fans slam Bollywoodtext_fields
Mumbai: Pakistani fans of the song ‘Pasoori’ has slammed Bollywood for recreating it for Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani's upcoming movie 'Satyaprem Ki Katha'.
The original Pakistani song, sung by Ali Sethi and Shae Gil, was the first Coke Studio song and the first Pakistani song to feature on Spotify's ‘Viral 50 – Global’ chart.
It was also Google’s most-searched song in the world in 2022. "Pasoori" also hit 500 million views on YouTube, making it the first Coke Studio music video to reach this milestone.
A Twitter user wrote: "Can they really remake Pasoori just on a whim? afaik that's an original song and should be strictly copyrighted to its makers? So did the makers give permission to the movie makers to 'recreate' the song or are they just gonna shamelessly bypass all that? How does that work?"
"Bollywood is recreating PASOORI????" questioned a netizen.
One said: "If pasoori is to be remade, it should be for a PAKISTANI FILM and not for a third-class Bollywood film! They disrespect our artists, and our country in their movies, and then shamelessly copy our songs."
"Bollywoodwallahs are such morons. The abundance of money really does make one lazy and uncreative. I do not wish their dolled-up stars dancing on Pasoori. Morons" said another.
An angry user added: "It’s the way y'all would shamelessly claim that Pasoori is your song and you'd give no credits at all to Ali Sethi and Shae Gill, that's what y'all did with Nach Punjaban.
The romantic film produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Sameer Vidwans, reunites Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani after their 2022 hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
Satyaprem Ki Katha will be released on June 29.
