KARACHI: Nirmala Maghani's lawyers sent Rs 100 million legal notice to producer Xulfi on Monday, pursuing a copyright violation action involving the Coke Studio 14 song Tu Jhoom.

According to the notice given to Coke Studio 14 producer, Nirmala Maghani had sent their compositions of Tu Mera Ranjha back on June 14, 2021 through WhatsApp voice notes in hopes to get her chance in Coke Studio but the producer Xulfi did not responded to her. However, a year later, the Nirmala Maghani was shocked to see when Coke Studio 14 song Tu Jhoom was released the as song was “made by copying notes and music composition” of Tu Mera Ranjha.

Xulfi was urged to stop using the music and obtain written authorization from Nirmala, according to the notification. 

"My client (Nirmala Maghani) on June 14, 2021, sent her compositions including the composition of Tu Mera Ranjha to you on your mobile, through WhatsApp messenger which all were in the form of voice notes," the notice reads.

"That as per the copyright laws you don’t have the right to telecast/broadcast or upload on YouTube the said song unless you have obtained permission from my client as it’s made based on notes and composition of my client. 

"That you are hereby instructed that you should apply [for] and obtain permission or license from my client and unless said is granted to you please remove the song from every social media website, YouTube and from [the] album of Coke Studio 14 as it is infringing upon the rights of my client."

In response to legal notice, Coke Studio producer’s company GIRAFFE PAKISTAN, that also manages Coke Studio 14, made a statement to The Express Tribune. 

"We have received a notice last evening and our legal team will respond to it through the correct channels in due course. As such, we are constrained to limit our responses in deference to the legal process initiated by Ms Maghani,"
