.Nothing comes from nothing is a philosophical expression of a thesis first argued by Parmenides. 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. 
As human beings it is in our nature to imitate actions of success as a survival instinct, therefore being doing so, we are undermining our own originality. 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.
As per my research the first copied song was from 1949 film Barsaat by Shankar Jaikishan,In this Blog I have taken those Evergreen songs by Shankar Jaikishan and the original song from which it was inspired or copied.
