Oh No! Emraan Hashmi & Esha Gupta’s Keh Doon Tumhe Remix DROPPED From Baadshaho

When Esha Gupta and Emraan Hashmi romanced each other in the most adorable way in Baadshaho’s the peppy number Socha Hai (remixed version of the famous song Keh Doon Tumhe from Deewar) fans went crazy looking at their chemistry. Not just for its visual appeal, the song was being appreciated for not tampering the classic.

However, unfortunately, we will not see the song anymore on any platform. It’s been pulled out from the movie and social platforms as well.

In a judgment passed by the division bench of the Mumbai High Court yesterday, Rajiv Rai (owner of Trimurti films who had the rights of the original song) won the case against Bhushan Kumar's music company Super Cassettes Industries. According to the verdict, Baadshaho makers cannot use the song at all on any medium.

Reportedly, Rai's Trimurti Films entered into a contract with lyricist Sudhir Ludhianvi and composer RD Burman in 1974. Since then it owns the copyright of the lyrics and music of the song.

On January 2, 1974, the company entered into an agreement with Polydor (now Universal Music India), granting them the right to make and sell gramophone records of songs from Deewar, and the mechanical reproduction rights for this limited purpose.

While speaking to mid-day, Rai said, "When you make a song, you sometimes give the remix rights to the music company. But, in this case, we had not given the rights to Polydor (Universal). So when T-Series took the remix rights from Universal, the company told them categorically that if Trimurti Films sues them, they will have to fight it out. It's not just a fight for me, but for all producers in Bollywood."

On the other hand, Bhushan Kumar (MD and chairman, T-Series) has abided by the judgement and dropped the song from the movie and pulled it down from all networks. However, he added that T-Series has always bought recreation rights from the respective music companies. This is the first time that the rights were fractured.

Well, looks like fans will surely miss a good number in the film!
