Cannon did not mention anything about the track, many people on social media informed him about the song and its familiarity to the track — Meri Nazar Hai Tujh Pe from the movie The Burning Train — composed by Burman.
Indians reacted instantly to remind him that the music he has used is of RD Burman some even went ahead to say he copied this.

This is NOT your Music. This is NOT your Composition. You did not do anything TO DESERVE it. Respect the original creator #RDBurman. Music from 80's movie – The Burning Train. #Disgraceful #Plaigarismhttps://t.co/QI59J85tDj
