The great R.D. Burman plagiarized quite a few songs including some of his most famous ones like Mehbooba Mehbooba (Sholay) from Demis Roussosss’ ‘Say You Love Me’, ‘Milgaya Hum Ko Saathi’ (Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin) from Abba’s ‘Mama Mia’ and more. But not many know about this one.
The song ‘Main Na Jhoot Bolun’ is from the movie Indrajeet (1991) starring Amitabh Bachchan and Jayapradha. The song was quite popular during those days. It is a copy of a Pakistani People’s Party song in praise of Benazir Bhutto called ‘Dilan Teer Bijan’ (1988). The singer is Shabana Noshi (mentioned here).
Here is the song ‘Main Na Jhoot Bolun’ from Indrajeet.
And here is the original song ‘Dilan Teer Bijan’.
