Musical imitation or inspiration is not new and has been around for a long time. Some musicians reproduce the entire piece, while others skillfully incorporate segments from other languages. Bollywood has never hidden the fact that it plagiarizes melodies from South Indian music. These songs, on the other hand, became major hits. They may have been influenced by South Indian music, as many of their tracks have hints of it. So here are some of the most popular Bollywood songs that have been blatantly plagiarized from South Indian music.
1] Hasina Pagal Deewani from “Indoo Ki Jawani”
Mika Singh was reportedly inspired to write this song by Tollywood classic Choopultho Guchi Guchi from the movie Idiot. Shankar Mahadevan, the most popular singer of all time, sings the song, which was released in 2002. Late musical director Chakri composed the music for this piece, while Kandikonda wrote the lyrics. It also demonstrates that Bollywood does not wish to hide its sources of influence. This current chart topper has been accused of plagiarizing a Telugu song.
2]Dhinka Chika from “Ringa Ringa”
Maybe one of Salman Khan’s mega-popular songs was a scam. He was influenced by Devi Sri Prasad’s hit article number Ringa Ringa from Tollywood. Allu Arjun is featured in the Telugu song, which is sung by Devi Sri himself. In fact, they licensed the Salman Khan star to use the song in their movie. To tell you the truth, this is called inspiration.
3]Pyar Pyar Pyar of Pink Rose
Do you remember this song from one of your favorite Akshay Kumar movies? It was a smash hit, and people are still stomping on the melody today. They had no idea, however, that this song had been copied. M. M. Keeravani’s Telugu song Rose Rose served as the creative inspiration for the song. SP Balasubrahmanyam and Chitra sing the song, which features Dr. Rajasekhar and Ramya Krishnan.
