Bhuj: The Pride of India released a new track titled Zaalima Coca Cola featuring Nora Fatehi earlier this week.

The song is sung by Shreya Ghoshal and the music has been composed by Tanishk Bagchi. While the song has received over 40 million views in just three days, the track seems to be a cover version of an old Punjabi song of the same name, sung by Pakistani singer Noor Jehan.

Whereas the original Zaalima Coca Cola Pila De was released in 1986.

Noor Jehan had sung the song for the Punjabi film Chan Te Soorma.

While Nora Fatehi‘s song doesn’t reinvent the complete track, Tanishk Bagchi and lyricist Vayu have maintained the chorus of the song.

On the contrary, the remake hasn’t been taken well by internet users.

Many social media fanatics have condemned the film for not giving the original anticipated credit. “#ZaalimaCocoCola @TSeries at least give credit to Madam Noor Jahan,” a fan said. “India boycotting Pakistani artists and then remaking their songs is hypocrisy at its best! #ZaalimaCocoCola originally sung by Noor Jehan is iconic,” another said.

Another person wrote that the recreation doesn’t come close to the original track. The fan’s tweet read: “Zaalima Coca Cola Pila De was originally sung by Madam Noor Jehan. no one can even touch madam’s voice.”
