Music composer Anu Malik alleges that Pritam Chakraborty has lifted the entire tune of his Mohabat naam hai kiska from Ajnabee and used it in the song Character dhila hai.
The song features in director Anees Bazmee's forthcoming movie Ready and is filmed with Salman Khan and Zarine Khan.
"The full tempo, the full tune has been taken and ripped off," Malik said. "I had liked the song and had called and congratulated Anees for such a fantastic song. Then I found that I was clapping for my own song," he added.
Malik may file a suit for plagiarising his song.
"We have to take a legal opinion and then take a call. I will talk to my lawyer first as it is a straight rip-off of my song," he said.
He wonders why Chakraborty didn't bother to give credit to R.D. Burman for using his composition in the title song of Rohan Sippy's Dum Maaro Dum.
"First of all they copied Panchamda's [Burman] tune and called it their own. You cannot copy another's composition and call it your own and then get away and get applause," he said.
