Well it was "borrowed" for a Hindi movie and renamed Ya Ali and is now a mega hit.
The Guitara guys are pissed off and now are taking legal action.
Kuwait-based Guitara band - backed by a Saudi prince - is all set to take legal action against the makers of Ya Ali for lifting their tune.
Bollywood has done it again. Lifting a tune, that is. But this time over, along with the success of the song, they have also earned the wrath of the Prince of the Saudi Arabian royal family who owns the company that has produced the original Arabic song Ya Ghali, which apparently has been plagiarised to come up with the Gangster chartbuster, Ya Ali.
You can be the judge and jury, here is the original Guitara song - Ya Ghali
Here is the Hindi version, Ya Ali
Rip off or innocent creativity?
I think they sound very similar, but the indian video is much better, it has a heart broken singer, pretty lady, guns and police chases. The Guitara video is more like fixing your car in Shuweikh il Sina3iya.
