Bollywood style diva Sonam Kapoor’s latest film ‘Khoobsurat’ has landed in controversy in less than 24 hours of the release of its first official trailer.

The film, which is a remake of veteran filmmaker Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 hit film by the same name, is apparently in thick soup for a song that featured in the trailer ‘Anjan ki seeti mein maro man dole’.

While a leading daily alleges that the song is a rip off from ‘Alka Yagnik track composed by Anu Malik for Jeetendra-Jaya Prada starrer, ‘Maa’, Sonam Kapoor says that the song is in fact a traditional Rajasthani folk song and not a copy of Anu Malik song.

An angry Sonam Kapoor took to Twitter to correct the facts. She said, “It’s a pity you don’t do research before writing articles, ‘Anjun ki seeti’ is an old Rajasthani folk song! It’s a pity journalists…write articles without an iota of responsibility. A few bad apples really spoil the basket.”

She said, “Anjan ki seeti mein maro man dole is a traditional Rajasthani folk song and not an Anu Malik song and it’s expected that a paper should research such facts before taking Any Malik or the internet seriously.”

Further, according to reports, The film has already bought the rights of the original Rajasthani song from its music label.

Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Khoobsurat’, in its essence remains much like Rekha’s film.
