Ever since Salman Khan posted on Twitter a message saying his friend director Vinay Sapru had 'churaoed' a song from the Salman starrer Tere Naam for Vinay's film Sanam Teri Kasam, there has been plenty of buzz on whether Salman has accused Vinay Sapru of plagiarism.
But Vinay who has been closely associated with Salman for years, having co-directed (along with Radhika Rao) the songs of several Salman starrers including Dabangg, says this was Bhai's way of drawing attention to Sanam Teri Kasam.
Says Vinay, "When I expressed a desire to show Salman Khan my film Sanam Teri Kasam, the first thing he said was that it reminded him of his own film Tere Naam. He then wanted to know why I had not gone to him before to get attention for my film. But there is always a long line of favour seekers at Salman's place. I didn't want to add to it."
Salman decided to create a buzz by tweeting about the 'stolen' song.
Says Vinay, "He loved the 'Haal-E-Dil' track in my film. And he decided to tweet about it in a way that would grab attention. Ever since Radhikaji and I co-directed Salman in the film Lucky, he has always been a pillar of strength for me. And I'd like to believe he's lucky for Sanam Teri Kasam."
