Mumbai: T-Pain had dropped a "surprise" song, which got blocked on YouTube on copyright grounds after Indian filmmaker Mohit Suri and Mithoon pointed out that the melody used by the Grammy award-winning rapper is the Indian composer's original work which had featured in the 2013 film Aashiqui 2.

Suri, who had helmed the Bollywood film, wrote: "Dunno why, but this seems familiar. Aashiqui 2 'Tum hi ho' T-Pain. It's a melody from Mithoon's song."
