Plagiarism case against Pritam withdrawn

Bollywood News

Recently, music composer Pritam landed in trouble along with the production house Illuminati Films post the filing of a copyrights claim by Iranian band Barobax regarding a song from Saif - Kareena starrer Agent Vinod.

The band alleged that the song 'Pungi Bajaa Ke' was a lift off from one of their albums. However, Bollywood Hungama has learnt that the Barobax has now withdrawn their complaint against Pritam, Illuminati Films and Eros International.

Commenting on the withdrawal, the band's spokesperson says, "We decided to withdraw the case filed against Mr. Pritam and others for the copying of a song of Barobax, an Iranian band. After looking into the defenses of Mr. Pritam and the analysis made by various experts, we have realized that Mr. Pritam is right and there is no copying of our song and so we understood that we cannot built a good case. We do not want to get into any further legal issue and so we are withdrawing the case as we know that Mr. Pritam's Lawyer is an expert in Copyright laws and there will be strong criminal action otherwise made out against us. We sincerely apologise to Mr. Pritam for all such and withdraw all our allegations made by us against him."
