Mehwish Hayat and Fahad Mustafa starred in a film called Load Wedding in 2018. The film did moderately well at the box office but won much critical acclaim. Directed by Nabeel Qureshi and produced by Fizza Ali Meerza, the film recently arrived on YouTube as well, after many months of its release. Bizzarely, it has been seen recently copied frame to frame by a Bangla singer named Shahid.
In this video, Shahid has copied the song ‘Kooch Na Karin' which was sung by Azhar Abbas and composed by Shani Arshad. While the audio seems fairly different from the original, the visuals are an almost exact copy of ‘Kooch Na Karin.’
This is the original video:
Here is Shahid’s version:
Many people, including Nabeel Qureshi’s associate director Kamran Lodhi, brought it to Shahid’s attention that the song was an almost frame-to-frame copy of 'Kooch Na Karin.' Some local commentators also said that the song was a copy from the film Load Wedding.
Masala! reached out to director Nabeel Qureshi and the director expressed his shock. "I couldn't believe it!" he said. Earlier his film Actor in Law was also copied frame-by-frame in a regional film in the 'Oriya' language. Nabeel also said that the recent film Batti Gul Meter Chalu starring Shahid Kapoor was also a copy of Actor in Law.
Here is the trailer of Actor in Law:
This is the trailer of the Shahid Kapoor starrer film Batti Gul Meter Chalu:
Load Wedding focused on how the practice of dowry can cause havoc in many lives of the middle class of Pakistan. However, Shahid’s take on the song was a bit different, as he gave it a nostalgic value and talked about how childhood was a golden era.
Mehwish Hayat and Fahad Mustafa’s film recently won many accolades, namely at Rajasthan Film Festival where it won the Viewer’s Choice Award.
Mehwish would soon be seen in Wajahat Rauf’s upcoming film Chhalawa whereas Fahad Mustafa was recently in Dubai to promote his team ‘Karachi Kings’ for the Pakistan Super League.
