It is associated with ancient Greek cosmology.So it is accepted that nothing is original.The Original Thought Theory" seems to hold that all possible thoughts have passed between the ears many times and will continue to do so. The majority of us spend our days desperately imitating the lives of others.

Needless to say, our Hindi film industry aka Bollywood has had a long and illustrious history of plagiarism.In this Blog I have selected those hit Bollywood songs which are copied or respectfully say Inspired from International songs.
