The Indians copying the Pakistanis in the world of entertainment goes back to the time when they copied Pakistan’s Dil Dil Pakistan. The Indian film Yaadon Ke Mausam featured the song Dil Dil Hindustan and when Pakistanis found out about it, they were in laughing fits.
Safe to say, Pakistanis do make amazing music, given how Indians can currently just come up with either redemption of old songs or songs such as Selfie Le Le.
Anyways, moving to the main subject. Remember the legendary Hawa Hawa song by Hassan Jahangir? If you can’t remember the song, here’s a quick flashback:
It Was Originally Released in 1987
So this upcoming Indian film Mubarakan starring Arjun Kapoor and Illeana D’Cruz copied Hawa Hawa and made their own version of it (????????)

And Pakistanis As Always, Were Quick To Enough To Point It Out

However, while we were all busy enjoying the moment to pick up on the Indians again (our favorite hobby jbtw). someone posted how the song Hawa Hawa is actually a copy of an Iranian song!

Similar to this is what has happened in the case of Sajjad Ali’s Babia, a copy of Algerian song Didi, which was also featured in Bollywood’s Airlift as Dil Cheez Tujhe Dedi.
Well, it is safe to say that Pakistanis know how to make their version pretty famous, which then becomes and inspiration for the Indians.
But give the credit where it is due, please, dear Indians?
