Last year’s romantic comedy film, Parey Hut Love (PHL) had everyone head over heels with its aesthetic appeal and wedding tracks. Regardless of whether the storyline was up to the mark or not, people took danced to its songs in family weddings while replicating the set design sets.
One of the most hit tracks of the film, Haey Dil channels high energy and is picturized on Sheheryar Munawar’s namesake character in PHL. The actor is seen lamenting about his Bechara dil (poor heart) and falling in love with Maya’s character Saniya, despite all his struggles.
Jimmy Khan’s irresistible vocals pull the listeners in and make it an anthem for every person who is afraid of falling in love but cannot help it either.
However, recent Twitter threads are suddenly questing if the song is actually a ‘copy’ of a Spanish track Sofia by Alvaro Soler.
It all started when this Twitter user shared her disdain, “Haye Dil by Jimmy Khan is such a catchy song and I was wowed that Pakistanis came up with it. Until a friend showed me the Spanish song they copied the tune of. Great.”
However, what many missed out is the fact that the music of the track is composed of Azaan Sami Khan with the lyrics being penned by Asim Raza himself. But Khan has not responded to the query as of yet.
While Jimmy provided his explanation to The Express Tribune, “I don’t know if the melody and composition were copied, since I just sang the song and had nothing to do with its production. Some inspiration may have been taken but I can’t say anything about it being copied.”
