Saif Ali Khan in the song from ‘Agent Vinod’
Dinesh Vijan, the co-producer of soon-to-be-released Bollywood movie ‘Agent Vinod’, Monday asserted that the popular track from the movie ‘Pungi Baja De’ is an original track.
“Are you finding any similarity in the track? Pritam Chakraborty (composer) has made an original song. I don’t see any reference. All I can say is that this has become the original song,” Vijan told to reporters.
Vijan’s statement came after after a legal notice was served to the team of ‘Agent Vinod’ including Eros International Media, Illuminati Films Private Ltd, Pritam Chakraborty and Super Cassettes Ltd for lifting the song (Pungi Baja De) from the music band, Barobax Corp.
The notice says the initial portion of the song ‘Pungi Baja De’ has been lifted without any change from the title song of the band’s album.
The much delayed ‘Agent Vinod’, which is finally releasing Friday March 23, has gained some negative publicity with Saif’s brawl with Iqbal Sharma. Vijan, however, does not believe in negative publicity.
He said: “We don’t believe any publicity is good publicity.”
‘Agent Vinod’ features Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor and is directed by Sriram Raghavan.
