Remixed version of ‘Keh Doon Tumhe’ axed from ‘Baadshaho’ after court order

The Bombay High Court stated that the makers of the Emergency-set heist thriller cannot use the ‘Deewar’ song.

Milan Luthria’s Emergency-era heist thriller will not be able to use a remixed version of Keh Doon Tumhe from Deewar (1975), according to Monday’s order by the Bombay High Court, Mid-Day reported. The remixed track Socha Hai features Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta. The September 1 release also stars Ajay Devgn, Vidyut Jamwal, Sanjay Mishra and Ileana D’Cruz, all of whom are chasing a truck of gold.

Rajiv Rai, whose Trimurti Films owns the rights to the song, won the case against producer Bhushan Kumar’s music company T Series. The case went to court after Kumar appealed against a decision by Justice KR Shriram restraining the film’s release if the song was used.

“When you make a song, you sometimes give the remix rights to the music company. But, in this case, we had not given the rights to Polydor,” Rai told Mid-Day. “So when T-Series took the remix rights from Universal, the company told them categorically that if Trimurti Films sues them, they will have to fight it out. It’s not just a fight for me, but for all producers in Bollywood.”

Kumar responded: “We’ve always bought recreation rights from the respective music companies. This is the first time that the rights were fractured. We have dropped the song from the movie and pulled it down from all networks.”

Children's Day is not for children alone

It’s also a time for adults to revisit their childhood.

Most adults look at childhood wistfully, as a time when the biggest worry was a scraped knee, every adult was a source of chocolate and every fight lasted only till the next playtime. Since time immemorial, children seem to have nailed the art of being joyful, and adults can learn a thing or two about stress-free living from them. Now it’s that time of the year again when children are celebrated for...simply being children, and let it serve as a timely reminder for adults to board that imaginary time machine and revisit their childhood. If you’re unable to unbuckle yourself from your adult seat, here is some inspiration.

Start small, by doodling at the back page of your to-do diary as a throwback to that ancient school tradition. If you’re more confident, you could even start your own comic strip featuring people in your lives. You can caricaturise them or attribute them animal personalities for the sake of humour. Stuck in a boring meeting? Draw your boss with mouse ears or your coffee with radioactive powers. Just make sure you give your colleagues aliases.

Pull a prank, those not resulting in revenue losses of course. Prank calls, creeping up behind someone…pull them out from your memory and watch as everyone has a good laugh. Dress up a little quirky for work. It’s time you tried those colourful ties, or tastefully mismatched socks. Dress as your favourite cartoon characters someday – it’s as easy as choosing a ponytail-style, drawing a scar on your forehead or converting a bath towel into a cape. Even dinner can be full of childish fun. No, you don’t have to eat spinach if you don’t like it. Use the available cutlery and bust out your favourite tunes. Spoons and forks are good enough for any beat and for the rest, count on your voice to belt out any pitch. Better yet, stream the classic cartoons of your childhood instead of binge watching drama or news; they seem even funnier as an adult. If you prefer reading before bedtime, do a reread of your favourite childhood book(s). You’ll be surprised by their timeless wisdom.

A regular day has scope for childhood indulgences in every nook and cranny. While walking down a lane, challenge your friend to a non-stop game of hopscotch till the end of the tiled footpath. If you’re of a petite frame, insist on a ride in the trolley as you about picking items in the supermarket. Challenge your fellow gym goers and trainers to a hula hoop routine, and beat ‘em to it!

Children have an incredible ability to be completely immersed in the moment during play, and acting like one benefits adults too. Just count the moments of precious laughter you will have added to your day in the process. So, take time to indulge yourself and celebrate life with child-like abandon, as the video below shows.
