Alia Bhatt's music video debut, 'Prada', has been caught in a plagiarism row with Pakistani band Vital Signs. Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat took to Twitter to criticise Bollywood of 'stealing' songs, and alleges the 'Prada' song has similarities with the Pakistani song 'Gore Rang ka Zamana'. Written by Shoaib Mansoor, the song was released as part of Vital Signs Volume 1.

Hayat criticised the makers and wrote,'Copyright violation and royalty payments obviously mean nothing'

The video is supported by Jackky Bhagnani's music venture Jjust Music. The music video is presented by the musical duo The Doorbeen, who are behind the hit Punjabi song 'Lamberghini.' Earlier this week, Hayat also slammed Shah Rukh Khan after he shared the trailer of his Netflix production Bard of Blood.

Meanwhile, Alia last appeared in Kalank, also starring Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, and Aditya Roy Kapur. The film failed to make a mark at the box office. The film also received underwhelming reviews from critics and audiences alike.

She recently wrapped up the Ooty schedule of Sadak 2, which marks the directorial comeback of her father Mahesh Bhatt. Alia will make her Telugu film debut with SS Rajamouli's RRR, which stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead.
