“Stealing so blatantly & shamelessly – They’ve lifted the groove, melody, stoccato vocalization, accents, tempo from my song, not the film version nor the Coke Studio version(which is also my arrangement). This has to stop!” Farhad had earlier shared his displeasure over the alleged plagiarism of his song Neray Aah in the Coca-Cola TV commercial.
This is not the first time Coca-Cola Pakistan is being accused of plagiarism, however, “Things happen when you stand up for your rights,” shared Farhad on Twitter after winning the case.
