Bombay HC says Krazzy4 has two copied songs

Mumbai, Apr 10 (ANI): The Bombay High Court pronounced today that two songs in forthcoming Hindi film Krazzy4 are the copy of jingle composer Ram Sampaths compositions.

Justice D G Karnik said that the movie could be released without the songs.

“To my untrained ear, the music in two works appeared to be similar,” Justice Karnik said after listening to both Sampath’s works for a Sony Ericsson cellphone advertisement, and the two songs composed by Rajesh Roshan for the film.

Earlier, Sampath had dragged Bollywood hero Hrithik Roshan’s father, his uncle Rajesh Roshan, their film company Film Kraft, Super Cassettes, Sony Erricsson and Saatchi & Saatchi to court accusing them for violating copyright of his composition.

The 32-year-old composer had alleged that the 60-second music titled The Thump had been copied into four tracks in the film Krazzy4.

Sampaths lawyer said, The malafide intent is manifest as there was no credit given to our client for the song and instead, credit was given to Rajesh Roshan.

Rajesh Roshan, who is shown as the film’s music composer/director, had earlier said that the music is an independent creation.

The film is due for release on Friday. (ANI)
