Himesh Reshammiya violates copyright act

MUMBAI: Singer and music composer Himesh Reshammiya has done the unthinkable. In his debut film as an actor – Aap Ka Suroor – The Moviee – The Real Luv Story, Reshammiya has added a song from Boney Kapoor’s Milenge Milenge, which is yet to go on the floors.


 


Incidentally, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor’s film but later decided to use it for his own. He has provided the entire musical score for Milenge Milenge.


 


The audio rights of Milenge Milenge, which stars Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapur, are with Tips. Tips’ Ramesh Taurani says, “Boney Kapoor has called my brother Kumar and informed about this unfortunate incident. The song is being aired on various TV channels. We are looking at various angles as to what action can be taken in this case. It is a violation of the copyright act.”


 


Producer Boney Kapoor adds, “Once the song is recorded for my film, it is my property. I have already informed Tips and even questioned Himesh about this. However, he is still in London and is expected to return tomorrow (8 November). We will be meeting him regarding this issue.”


 


Meanwhile, the audio rights of Reshammiya’s Aap Ka Suroor – The Moviee – The Real Luv Story has been acquired by T-Series. T-Series chairman and managing director Bhushan Kumar was unavailable for comment.
