Has Ek Mulaaqat copied Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahunga?
By Bryan Durham - January 5, 2019
Mithoon just can’t catch a break. After T-Pain using the basic melody of Tum Hi Ho for his latest track sans credit or licensing, now it seems that Cheat India composers Kunaal-Rangon have gone ahead and borrowed the hook of Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahunga (Half Girlfriend) for their Ek Mulaaqat.
Here’s the thing, Main Phir Bhi… was one of the most popular songs of Half Girlfriend and also the most prolific. Cut to the Cheat India track Ek Mulaaqat, which released yesterday, and you start out agreeably enough before the song heads into the chorus.
As Jubin Nautiyal launches into the chorus, you’re instantly transported to the slightly faster-paced Half Girlfriend song, sung by Arijit Singh.
