Madhuri’s songs, a copy of original folk songs
Madhuri Dixit is not only a talented actress but she is a wonderful dancer also. She has proved her dancing skills many times with songs like “ek do teen…” from the movie Tezaab, “dola re” from the movie Devdas and many more. But you know some of her dance numbers became famous not only because of Madhuri’s dance but because they were copied from some original folk songs. Take for example, Madhuri Dixit’s “mera piya ghar aaya”. It is a copy of a famous folk song.
You must be remembering that the song called “mera piya ghar aaya” starring Madhuri Dixit was a hit song of its time. The movie was Yaarana and Madhuri got lot of fame from this song. In fact, the original song was “Mera Piya Ghar aya O Laal ni…Piya ghar aya, sannu… “. This song was sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Saheb. The very much distorted version of this song was what Madhuri danced on. The original song is completely different from its bad copy.
“Mera Piya Ghar Aaya” from the movie Yaarana was not the only song of Madhuri Dixit to be copied from a folk song as the other one was Madhuri’s “Didi Tera Dewar Deewana” from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. This song was borrowed from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan‘s “Saare Nabian”. Even the “Nimbooda” from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was straight away a copy of a Rajasthani folk song with the same name. It is not for the first time that Bollywood has copied a folk song.
We are talking about the song Munni Badnaam Hui from the recently released movie Dabangg. Many of you must not be knowing that this song is very much inspired ( yes “inspired” is the word to cover the shame of copying) from the Bhojpuri song “Launda Badnaam Hua Naseeban Tere Liye”, sung by Rani Bala in an album called “Balma Bada Bavaali”.
