Pakistani singer Fakhr-e-Alam accuses makers of Dulha Mil Gaya of lifting his track

// // // The track Dilruba ke jalwe from Dulha Mil Gaya, picturised on Shah Rukh Khan and Sushmita Sen, may not be an original composition. Pakistani singer Fakhr-e-Alam claims the song is a lift of Husnwalon se puchcho, which he had composed nine years ago.

Fakhr says, “The company which holds the rights to my song brought this to my notice. I went onto the net and confirmed it. All I can say is that this is extremely sad. My company is examining various legal options, but all I want is to be given credit for the song. If they had just asked me, I would have given the song to them free of cost. The fact that my song is being used in such a big film is a great honour for me. As an artiste, I only want acknowledgement for my work.”

But dismissing Fakhr’s claim, Lalit Pandit, the music composer of Dulha Mil Gaya says, “I don’t remember listening to any such song. This is an original composition by me which director Mudassar Aziz had in mind, and we developed it together.”
