The makers of ‘Bullett Raja’ were forced to re-think the idea of using the lyrics of ‘Pyar Mein Dil Pe’ from the classic film ‘Mahaan’ for its own film after HMV chucked a wobbly.
The song called ‘Tamache Pe Disco’ composed by British Asian band RDB, sampled parts of the popular Amitabh Bachchan track, only to be told after by record label HMV that they cant use it due to copyright issues.
An insider told Mid-Day, ���The makers didn�۪t have the rights to the song that had been recorded by the music group RDB. They had no choice but to drop the lyrics.� The film stars Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha.
Surj from the music band says, ���The track ‘Tamache Pe Disco’ was originally composed by us after incorporating certain snatches from ‘Pyar Mein Dil’. When the producers requested us for the song, we had to shoot the music video in a matter of few days.�
However, a source close to the makers, says, ���Nothing was finalised. So the question of acquiring rights does not arise.�
The spokesperson of the production house says, ���The scratch provided by RDB had the lines ‘Pyar Mein Dil Pe’. However, for our film, we wanted an original composition and we requested them to provide us with the same. And that is what is being used in the film.�
