Singer Abhijeet, who has always been known for his electrifying voice, has been in the news of late for the wrong reasons. Recently, he accused the composer duo Sajid-Wajid of plagiarizing the music of Housefull 2. He blamed that the duo lifted a tune from his album Tere Bina in their song 'Do You Know' in the film.
It now seems that the composer duo has had enough and that's why, they have now decided to take legal action against the singer. They furthermore came strong on this decision when Abhijeet called at the Composers' Housing Society (Royal Classic at Andheri) late last week and complained against the composer duo.
A visibly irritated Wajid spared no emotions while lashing it out on Abhijeet. He said he wanted to put an end to all the allegations. What he failed to understand was the fact that what took the singer so long to realize the similarities between the two, considering that the film's music was released on February 6 this year. He also pointed out that how Abhijeet can talk about being 'original', when he himself earns a living by imitating the (late) Kishore Kumar. Wajid strongly said that even if someone gave them a chance to copy his (Abhijeet's) song for free, they will reject it. He also pointed out at Abhijeet's song in the film Gangster was a note-by-note copy of a Pakistani song composed by M. Arshad. What he fails to understand is that how Abhijeet can get away singing by a remake of Pakistani song when he had initiated a campaign against singers from Pakistan in Bollywood.
Wajid also added that it is Abhijeet himself who should be the first to be punished as he is so adamant on punishing Indians who work with Pakistani musicians. As a finishing shot, he remarked that 'respect is commanded, not demanded'.
Over to you, Abhijeet!
