Amjad Sabri, the song of Ghulam Farid Sabri, stepped forward to claim to inherit the rights of his forefathers’ compositions and likely to take legal actions against Adnan Sami Khan over singing without their his consent.
Days ago, the Pakistani born singer and musician Adnan Sami, who has been working in Bollywood, had sung the famous Sabri Brothers’ qawwali ‘Bhar Do Jholi Meri’ in Salman Khan’s upcoming venture ‘Bajrangi Bhaijan’.
However, Amjad Sabri said that the Bollywood composer had neither sough his permission nor given reasonable credits to Sabri Brothers.
In a video message with Waqar Zaka, Amjad Sabri said so claiming that permission was not sought. He added that they had just mentioned in a news that the Qawwali was a homage and tribute to Sabri Brothers, which was not suitable way to give them credits.
‘Their (Sabri Brothers) son is still alive and working, he (Adnan) should have asked for permission,’ said Amjad Sabri.
Responding to Waqar’s question, he replied that he did not sell the melody of his father and he is looking forward to take a legal action in this regard.
The Qawwali ‘Bhar Do Jholi’ has enjoyed decades of popularity in the circle of Sufism not only in Pakistan but also wherever Urdu is understood.
