India copies Pakistani songs and dramas
Pakistani music and entertainment are quite popular in India. A few days ago, the news of Indian production copying the concept of Pakistan’s blockbuster series, ‘Meray Pass Tum Ho’ had gone viral on social media.
Earlier this year, Bollywood recreated the Pakistani song ‘Zaalima Coca Cola’ for its anti-Pakistan war movie featuring Nora Fatehi. The song of legendary Pakistani singer Noor Jehan has been used in the upcoming movie of Ajay Devgn named ‘Bhuj: The Pride of India’.
The song has been dubbed the ‘party song of the year’. As per the trailer, Nora Fatehi plays an Indian spy who has been sent to Pakistan to gather important information. “There is a possibility that the dance number is performed as some sort of a ruse against the ‘enemy country,” says the Indian media outlet, The Indian Express.
The Pakistani Twitter has expressed anger on Bollywood recreating the Pakistani song for a movie that vilifies and portrays Pakistan in a negative light.
