Galliyan singer-composer Ankit Tiwari is controversy’s favourite child. This time, he is being accused that his song Piya More from Baadshaho is not original.
The director of Dee Saturday Night, Jai Prakash had spoken to a leading tabloid and said: “They [Baadshaho’s makers] must have asked Ankit to compose an item song and he conveniently lifted the song from my film. Ankit must have thought, ‘Film kisiko maloom nahi hai, producer flop baitha hua hai, kaun action lega?”

While talking about this further, the filmmaker also said: “I discussed the matter with Ashoke Pandit (vice president of IMPPA) and other members of the committee. They insisted that I take legal action.” He also said, “I’m shocked that people like Bhushan Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Milan Luthria, who are spending R100 crore on the film, cannot [get their composer to] create another [original] song! I’ll take legal action against them and stop the movie’s release if need be.”
Nasha Sar Pe Chadke Bole Song
Ankit Tiwari however has refuted these claims. The singer cum composer said: “The two songs are definitely not similar. If you get a music expert to listen to both songs, he’ll tell you about [the difference in their] tunes and chord progression.”
While the expert reviews are awaited, we heard both the songs carefully and found them quite similar. The hooks ‘Piya more bholey bole, move your body haule haule’ and ‘Nasha sar pe chadke bole, move your body haule haule’ have the same composition and even share some of the lyrics.

This is not the first time that Ankit has landed himself in the eye of a storm. Prior to this he was in the news for clarifying his stand on the rape case and said that he never had sex with the complainant.
