Singer and actor Farhan Saeed claims Bollywood composer Salim Merchant plagiarised his song “Roiyaan”. Taking to Twitter, Saeed called out Merchant for copying his 2014 track. He also advised Bollywood take permission if they really want to copy something. “Someone just sent me Salim Merchant’s song Haareya, which is a total copy of my song Roiyaan,” he wrote. “I wonder how they have the audacity to call themselves artists when they steal someone’s work.”The singer added, “Karna hi hai to pooch ke karo aur ager poochna nahin hai to at least acha to kuro!”‘Someone just sent me Salim Merchant’s song Haareya, which is a total copy of my song Roiyaan. I wonder how they have the audacity to call themselves artists when they steal someone’s work’Merchant responded to his claims and clarified “Farhan I just heard your song. It’s a mere coincidence that the chorus of Haareya is like your song. To be honest I’ve never heard it before. It happens many a time when notes have a natural progression from each other. Suleman and I have a track record of never plagiarising.” The 35-year-old singer replied back and said “If you say so! Another coincidence is we have the same lyricist! Anyway good luck!”It does not end here. The Indian singer has advised Farhan Saeed to check with the songwriter. He said he would have made changes to the composition of “Haareya” if he heard the Pakistani song earlier.
