Israel's Olympics win helps Twitter expose Anu Malik's plagiarism of country's national anthem for Diljale song

·1 min read

Anu Malik was subject of discussion on Twitter after social media users realised the 1996 song 'Mera Mulk Mera Desh' from Diljale is eerily similar to the Israeli national anthem 'Hatikvah'.

The likeness to the national anthem only came to light after gymnast Artem Dolgopyat won Israel's second-ever Olympics gold and the national anthem was played at the venue to mark his victory.

Directed by Harry Baweja, Diljale starred Ajay Devgn, Sonali Bendra, Madhoo, Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Parmeet Sethi and Gulshan Grover in pivotal roles.

Malik quickly became the subject of fodder, funny tweets and memes after social media users found out about the plagiarism.
