Sadak 2 song Ishq Kamaal copied from my original composition ‘Rabba Ho’ alleges Pakistani singer Shezan Saleem

A music producer Shezan Saleem from Pakistan claimed that, Ishq Kamaal song which is being played in the trailer of ‘Sadak 2’ is copied from a song Rabba Ho which was produced, mix-mastered by him.

The trailer of the movie ‘Sadak 2’ was released on 12th August ’20, and it has already received over 9.8 million dislikes on YouTube. Before the trailer release, the movie had already become a center of controversy due to the on- going case of Sushant Singh Rajput, the nepotism debate, insider-outsider issue, and the strong reactions against Bollywood ‘mafias’. ‘Sadak 2’ is a sequel to the movie ‘Sadak’ which was released in the year 1991, and within 24 hours the trailer became the most disliked video on YouTube.


In the trailer, there is a song being a played in the background called as Ishq Kamaal. Now, Shezan Saleem, a music producer from Pakistan, took to his Twitter handle and stated that the song that plays in the trailer of ‘Sadak 2’, sounds like a 2011 song ‘Rabba Ho’ which was produced, mix-mastered by him and was composed by Zaid Khan.

Along with the tweet, he also shared a video where he said that, “11 years ago I had produced music for one of my friend (Zaid Khan), who had wrote and composed the song Rabba Ho”. While showing the trailer of ‘Sadak 2’, he further said, “First, I thought they have only copied the melody of our song, but they have copied the music too”. Shezan further showed the date of the song which was released on his Youtube channel.

In the tweet, he further wrote, “@foxstarhindi What do we do about this. Copied from a song that I produced in Pakistan and launched in 2011. Let’s talk guys”.

Shezam Saleem also made a YouTube video regarding this issue.
