Bollywood has an extensive history of plagiarism with most of their films being a copy of Hollywood movies. Way before the Internet was easily accessible to everyone, films or music makers would unashamedly copy others work without any fear of being called out.

By listening to that song we can easily say that her debut song, ‘Prada’ is a major rip off of the Vital Signs hit song “Goray Rung Ka Zamana”.

Well, we wish India someday come up with its original song compositions, let us what do you think…
