Wondering who could succeed Anu Malik as the next big copycat in bollywood? It is none other than Pritam - the composer of successful albums like Dhoom, Gangster among others. Surprised? Let me add that some of his most famous compositions were blatant tune lifts - Dhoom Macha Le (Dhoom) and almost all songs of Gangster!
itwofs.com, the database of 'inspired' indian film songs, lists 20 complete tune lifts by Pritam - in just 3 years!!! At this rate, he can easily dethrone Anu Malik.

Pritam was in news recently. His all famous Ya Ali (Gangster) was a total ripoff of Ya Ghali by the Arabic band, Guitarra. Unfortunately for Pritam, the company which produced the original is owned by none other than the Prince of Saudi Arabia, who is considering legal action against Pritam and the producers.

What's funny is the way Pritam reacted to this news, in an interview to Musicindiaonline.
"I’ve earned Rs. 60,000 for Ya Ali. So if Guitarras wants to share my profits for it they are welcome."
