Zubeen Garg Hits out at Bollywood Singer Udit Narayan
Assam’s singing sensation, Zubeen Garg took to social media to lash out his frustration at veteran Bollywood singer, Udit Narayan over a song that has reportedly been copied from one of Zubeen Garg’s timeless classics, 'Pakhi Pakhi ei mon'.
Zubeen’s ‘Pakhi pakhi ei mon’ is one of his most popular songs and was released in 2007. However, a video that was released on February 22, 2017 on YouTube, a song ‘Pakhi Pakhi’ from the movie Tapori, was sung by veteran Bollywood singer, Udit Narayan where the tune and bits and pieces of the lyrics reportedly matched with Zubeen’s song, ‘Pakhi pakhi ei mon’.
Zubeen Garg on his social media profile said that the song sung by Udit Narayan ji is a copy of "pakhi pakhi ei mon" and while he condemned this act, he also declared that he will take legal action against this.
This song recently sung by Udit Narayan Official ji is a total copy of my song "pakhi pakhi ei mon" which I wrote/composed and sung 15 years ago. As an artist, I wont tolerate this, and I hereby declare that I am going to take legal action against this. I condemn this act."
