New Delhi.Lyricist Manoj Muntashir, who has written many memorable and popular songs in Hindi films, is at the center of controversies these days.A lot of trolling is being done in social media regarding the creation of Manoj.It is being said that this composition printed in his book is an exact translation of an English poem.Manoj has been continuously responding to such allegations and now he has made a big claim that he is being punished for being a nationalist.
Manoj Muntashir responded to those who attacked him by releasing a video from his Twitter account on Thursday evening.Manoj wrote with this video – This is not cleanliness, my answer should be understood.In the video of about a minute, Manoj says – none of my creations are 100% original.File a petition against me.I accept every decision of the Hon'ble Court.The interior of the streets was inspired by a lion of Momin.The lines of Tere Sang Yaara come from a sher of Firaq Gorakhpuri.
Mera Apna Geet Teri Mitti has been translated into many languages, but my name is hardly mentioned anywhere.I'm not going to stop and bow down.Only on the strength of my hard work and art, I have reached the Rajpath of success from the footpaths of Gauriganj.I am being punished for being a nationalist.Those who stigmatize me, decide it is impossible to stop me.Look, whether I've taken the name of Robert J. Levery there or not.Get started on this work from today.My full name, legal name is Manoj Muntashir Shukla and I am proud of it.
Let me tell you, Manoj was accused of stealing the works of others and publishing it in his own name when a user claimed that it was the book Love Lost-Love by Robert J. The poem published in Found is Hindi Tarjuma of Call Me.Since then Manoj is constantly being trolled on social media.Earlier, Manoj was in the news for a video in which he commented on the alleged glorification of the Mughals in history.
Manoj has written songs for films like Akshay Kumar's film Kesari, Shahid Kapoor's film Kabir Singh, Ajay Devgan's film Bhuj - The Pride of India, Baahubali - The Beginning and Baahubali 2- The Conclusion.
