Saif Ali Khan is again under troubles. Yes, he had just finished with the brawl controversy happened between him and South African businessman Iqbal Sharma at Taj Hotel in Mumbai but now one more trouble hit Saif’s door. Well, this new trouble has happened to his upcoming film ‘Agent Vinod’ which has also been produced under his banner Illuminati Films. A legal notice has been issued to Saif Ali Khan’s film company Illuminati Films, Eros International Media, music composer Pritam Chakraborty and Super Cassettes Ltd on behalf of Borabax Corp, an Iranian underground band.
The trio of Kevian Haghgoo, Kashayar Haghgoo and Hamid Farouzmand had formed this band way back in 2003. The band has alleged that the initial portion of the number of Pyar Ki Pungi (from Agent Vinod) has been copied from the band’s number ‘Soosan Khanoom’. The band maintained in the legal notice that the track was registered in Canada under the copyright act on June 30th 2011. Thus legally no one can use any portion or the entire song without the prior permission of the band. As per the notice, the band got to know about the copied material on March 12th when they watched the number and the promotional activities on satellite channels. After seeing this, the band sent their representative to Mumbai so that the matter could be investigated.
Super Cassettes’s legal team is now dealing with this legal notice filed by the Iranian band. The producers of the movie have turned down the allegations making the stance that the entire song was original.
Saif Ali Khan said that he thoroughly looked into the matter and he found the beginning groove similar. He then said that a lot of music could sound similar so our legal team was on way to handle the issue.
