Guru Randhawa on copying Zayn Malik’s song
Breaking the silence on plagiarism allegations, Guru said to Bollywood Bubble, “Mujhe nahi lagta maine Zayn Malik ka koi music copy kara hai. Aur agar kara bhi ho toh koi baat nahi. Mein ache logon ka music copy karna chahta hoon life mein. (I don’t think I’ve copied Zayn Malik’s music. And even if I’ve then it doesn’t matter. I want to copy the music of good people).”
Adding to it, the singer stated if a song inspires him to make something, then he wants to do that. According to Guru, it doesn’t make a difference to him how many views his songs get on Youtube, he has made music that is what counts for him as an artist. Rest, he left it to the audience to decide. He said, “If I’m inspired by that (the song) then I want to create something like that. If I get 500 million, 10 million or 1 million views, it doesn’t matter. Well, what matters is that I’ve done the work. And that’s up to the audience.”
