Right from his first song, most of the SRK songs are copied/inspired from many sources.
I will be updating this post on regular intervals as I don’t have much time. Members please feel free to point out Copied SRK songs on comment section.
Aisi deewangi from Deewana (1992)
Copied from Kannada song Kanasalu Neenu Manasalu Neene
It is Pashto folk song or tappa, sung by an anonymous singer. Haroon Bacha, a well-known Pashtun singer made it poular in 80s
Rahim shah, made this song a hit by translating the “tappa” into Urdu and giving the song his own arrangement (Early 90s)

Earlier to declare a movie a hit, First day, First weekend or first week business were not considered at all (as most of the A grade movies used to take 70-100& opening). Only after 3weeks (in the 90s) 5weeks(80s) 7-10 weeks (70s) and if the movie continue to trend and do well, then those film were called hits.
Some movies in these period find it difficult to collect the minimum amount (Minimum amount is the amount fixed by the exhibitors. If the movie fail to collect the minimum amount, the exhibitors had all right to discontinue the movie in their theatre) So the so called Stars started feeding the BO. Ie by purchasing the tickets in bulk. That means housefull boards outside and hardly 10-15% audience inside. This way they fooled public that movie is going strong. So naturally public came to check these movies thinking kuch toh baat hoga film mein and it helped the movie to sustain and boost the collection
Jeetendra was the man to introduce this. He used to spend 50% of his film remuneration for BO feeding. Later other stars followed. Dharam did it for just 2 movies. Shatrugna, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Anil kapoor (For Mr India and Judaai) Sunny deol (For London, Lootere, Barsaat), Govinda (for most of his films) SRK (For Anjaam, Chamatkar, RBGJ) Aamir (Hum hai rahi pyaar ke, Mela, Ghulam) Akshay Kumar (Aarzoo, MLTA, SBK. KKK) Suniel Shetty, Ajay Devgan all of them resorted to this barring handful of Stars like Amitabh, Salman, Sanjay dutt (But baba’s secretary Oberoi did it for 2 movies of Baba)
This practice was stopped after Ajay Devgan was caught red handed for doing it for Pyaar toh hona hi tha. The Chamber reprimanded him for doing so and it stopped gradually.
Cast: Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raj, Arbaaz Khan, Deepak Dobriyal and Nikitin Dheer
Release date: December 21, 2012
Quick take: Dabangg 2 is a fanboy’s dream and wouldn’t disappoint the first comer either.
This is how other actors learn to be in character: They grow beards, learn the diction, and even go around everywhere in get up. Salman Khan however, just makes sure the cameraman has caught his profile right. The star works on pure charisma. A mere glimpse od him is enough to make his fans go into a tizzy. He’s slowly turning into Rajnikanth and your mailbox is in danger of being flooded with Salman jokes some time soon.
Arbaaz Khan, who took over from Abhinav Kashyap (who directed the earlier Dabangg) sticks more or less to the same template. So you have an honest but bent cop (Salman Khan) who triumphs over evil by trumping the system and a politician type (Prakash Raj), who goes about being bad in his vastly stereotyped ways. Both try to be one-up on each other throughout the length of the film before squaring things off in a gory climax.
What Arbaaz has intelligently done is keep the humour of the original flowing in the sequel as well. Chulbul Pandey is having the time of his life playing cop and Salman is having the time of his life playing Chulbul. Then, the emotional quotient of the original goes up another notch. Chulbul further cements his relationship with his stepfather Prajapati (Vinod Khanna), the scenes where they bond and banter are well executed. The bond between the brothers gets strengthened as well. Real and reel identities merge and you feel its Salman who’s happy when younger brother Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan) comes into his own and wants to do something with his life. It’s Salman and Arbaaz who paint the town red and not their characters.
