Kesari song Teri Mitti faces plagiarism allegations 

Akshay Kumar's 2019 film 'Kesari' was loves by one and all. The film based on the ultimate sacrifice of 21 Sikh soldiers was taken to next level by its phenomenal soundtrack. The song 'Teri Mitti' in particular was appreciated by everyone. However, since last few days, the song has been in news for all the wrong reasons. It is being alleged that it has been copied from a 2005 Pakistani song.

Manoj Muntashir, who wrote the lyrics for the song, has responded to these allegations and he has absolutely turned them down. He told a news outlet, "Those making these allegations should kindly check the video which has been uploaded many months after the release of our film, ‘Kesari’. And for your kind information the singer is not Pakistani but our very own Indian folk singer Geeta Rabari. You can call and check with her, too.”

He further stated strongly that if his song is proven to be a copy, he would quit writing. "If it is proved that Teri Mitti is a copy of any song whatsoever, I will quit writing forever," he said. Manoj also stated that the reason he is being targeted is his recent video in which he used some harsh words for Mughal rulers.
