May 3, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Sajid Khan’s Hindi movie Housefull released on 30th has run into troubled waters. The Kolkata High Court has issued a restraining order against the song Aisi to jaise taise used in the film.
The hit song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan in the 1981 film ‘Lawaris’. It appears in a remixed avatar in Housefull, mixed with another song Dhanno. Anandji and the heirs of Kalyanji, who had composed the original track, filed a suit against the makers of the film. The heirs of the late Prakash Mehra have also filed a separate suit, claiming he had written the original song. They have alleged that producer Sajid Nadiadwala had not obtained the proper permission and legal rights of the film.
Justice Patherya of the Kolkata HC has ordered an interim stay on the use of the song till June 2. The original version had been rendered by Kishore Kumar and was quite a hit. Sajid defends the film saying that song was only done as a tribute to the bygone era!
The comic capers stars a host of celebs like Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Arjun Rampal, Jiah Khan and Retiesh Deshmukh.
