‘Kantara’ plagiarism row: Prime Video removes song ‘Varaha Roopam’, Thaikkudam Bridge reacts

‘Amazon Prime has removed the plagiarised version of our song N A V A R A S A M from the movie KANTARA. Justice Prevails,’ Thaikkudam Bridge wrote on Facebook.

Rishab Shetty’s ‘Kantara’ made headlines recently after Kerala-based band Thaikkudam Bridge alleged that the song ‘Varaha Roopam’ from the film was plagiarised from their song ‘Navarasam’. They even sought legal action against the song. The film was released on the OTT platform Prime Video on Thursday, November 24. Now, Thaikkudam Bridge took to their Facebook page and announced that ‘Varaha Roopam’ has been removed from the film by Prime Video.

Sharing a picture collage of their song and 'Varaha Roopam', Thaikkudam Bridge wrote, ‘Amazon Prime has removed the plagiarised version of our song N A V A R A S A M from the movie KANTARA. Justice Prevails. Thanks to our Attorney: Satish Murthi & our mentor Mathrubhumi for their unstinted support. Thanks to our musician fraternity, fans and media who extended their wholehearted support to fight for their rights.’

However, fans of the Rishab Shetty-starrer are disappointed as ‘Varaha Roopam’ has been removed. Soon, the hashtag, #BringBackVarahaRoopam trended on Twitter with many pointing out that without the song, the film looks soul-less.

Thaikudam Bridge moved the court in October against the makers of ‘Kantara’ and they were forced to remove the song.

Kantara, directed by Rishab Shetty, has earned over ₹400 crore gross at the box-office globally. It has emerged as the highest-grossing film of all time in Karnataka.
