Salman Khan’s blockbuster film Bodyguard was the highest opening day grosser of 2011. The movie broke several records at the Box office. The love track of the film Teri Meri Prem Kahani was one of the most popular songs of the film. Crooned by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Ghoshal, the beautiful song has been composed by Himesh Reshammiya. We all love the song but how many of them know that this is not an original composition. Yes, you heard that right Himesh has copied this track from a Romanian Christmas Carol. (ALSO READ: Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan song Bhar Do Jholi Meri copied from old Qawwali)
The original track is a Romanian Christmas Carol by La Bethleem, colo-n jos. Himesh must have been so impressed with the track that he chose to pick the music as it is and add few effects to it. Shabbir Ahmed’s lyrics added much needed exuberance to the track. Watch the original Romanian Carol here.
