Anu Malik thrashed by Indian twitter for blatantly plagiarizing Israeli National Anthem

Who saw that coming?

The realization that Bollywood composer, Anu Malik, may have plagiarized the Israeli National Anthem created a storm on Twitter after Israel’s win at the Tokyo Olympics.

On Sunday, after the Israeli national anthem Hatikvah blared in the stadium during the event to honor the winner, Hindustan Times pointed out the glaring similarities between it and Malik’s song Mera Mulk Mera Desh.

This song was streaked with patriotic colors when it was released in the 1996 film, Diljale, which was sung by Aditya Narayan and Kumar Sanu, with the video star as actor Ajay Devgn.

The revelation snowballed into several Indians taking to Twitter to call out the famous composer for his antics and some tweets were too creative to ignore.

One user hilariously explained that Malik deserves a bit more credit, not for his music, but because: “It needs years of research and analysis to find out which country isn’t going to win medals for years. Visionary man.” We have to say the user made a pretty fair point.

This tweet has us wondering which country is next on Malik’s list.

And finally,

To put the cherry on top, this is not the composer’s first time being accused of plagiarism, as some of his trademark tracks like Dil Mera Churaya Kyun, Kaho na Kaho and Nasha Ye Pyar Ka are just a few songs that appear to not be so original after all, with their copied beats from international hits.
