The making of Dabangg has not been without discussion. Here's a new negative point that will only make the conversations around the film a little more unpleasant. A video is going viral on the internet, which shows how a musical sequence for the song "Tere Mast Mast Do Nain" has been lifted straight from the Hollywood film, 500 Days of Summer. Seriously, it is a shot to shot copy! And makes you wonder do filmmakers don't even want to come up with 30 seconds long sequence that is original? Raju Khan and Shabina Khan were the choreographers on "Tere Mast Mast Do Nain" and we can't understand what must have led them to plagiarise the sequence from the Hollywood film. 10 Years of Dabangg: Malaika Arora aka 'Munni' Celebrates a Decade of Salman Khan-Sonakshi Sinha Starrer Blockbuster Film!
It is tough to believe it would have been a tribute to the original, when Bollywood is so blatantly infamous for plagiarism. From copying songs to scenes to the entire movie, the stalwarts in the film industry have done it all. There has been enough chatter and controversies around the lack of originality. Well, add one more topic of discussion to that debate.
