Pakistani Musician Shezan Saleem, also known by JO-G, has alleged the makers of the upcoming movie Sadak 2 for copying one of his self-composed songs from 2011’s list. He took to twitter to claim this hour after the trailer of the movie was dropped on air yesterday. He has also shared the similarities between the two songs in the same tweet. As a result, his allegation has come under the scanner of Fox Star Studios, under which the movie has been produced.
What do we do about this. Copied from a song that I produced in Pakistan and launched in 2011.

The video which Shezan attached in his tweet had him explaining all the similarities between those two songs and also had short clips from the songs actually proving him to be true to his words. In the video, he said that when listened to the song he realised the song is a copy of his own composition. He also mentioned that he had made this song for his friend Zaid Khan. Shezan also claimed that the makers have tried copying not only the melody but the complete music sounded the same. In the end, he asks, “What does the public have to say?”
In his words, the claims of Pooja Bhatt stand very contrary, who is also the co-producer of Sadak 2. Earlier she had voiced about introducing new talents in her film. She didn’t hide the fact that ‘Ishq Kamaal’ song is a product of a music teacher from Chandigarh who personally came down to her seeking a chance.
Now, after so many controversies already attached with Sadak 2, this allegation has also added another headache for the makers. And let’s not forget that the trailer is currently the most disliked video on Youtube. (To read more about the issue check our report)
