Anubhav Sinha claims BJP copied his Bhojpuri rap song

Anubhav Sinha took to his official Twitter handle and released a statement in which he claimed that the recently released BJP rap song ahead of Bihar elections 2020 is a blatant and unabashed copy of his song Bambai Mein Ka Ba. He also shared that he holds copyrights for this song.

In his statement, Anubhav Sinha said, “BJP is a party that governs this country and this sets a terrible example about the way they respect the Intellectual Property rights of others. No one ever reached out to me for my permission. In an ideal world, this would cost money that they can easily afford. I am sure there was a reason why they didn’t. I am happy to believe this is an oversight of the senior members and I am happy to let it go. Also, it is beyond my means and powers to take this to court. Yes. I had to say this. I only expect the courtesy that the supporters do not troll me for saying this. Thank you,”.

In his tweet, he shared the link to his song Bambai Mein Ka Baa. Here is a look at Anubhav Sinha’s Twitter.
