YouTube Removes Chahat Fateh Ali Khan's Song "Bado Badi"

Pakistani singer and internet sensation Chahat Fateh Ali Khan’s song “Bado Badi” recently became a social media sensation, gaining widespread attention due to its unique singing style and quirky music video.

However, Pinkvilla says the song has been taken down from YouTube following a copyright infringement claim, leaving many fans puzzled.

Featuring model Wajdan Rao, “Bado Badi” quickly became a hit among internet users. Its peculiarities sparked a wave of memes and viral content on platforms like Instagram and TikTok.

The trend was further amplified as celebrities from both India and Pakistan joined in, increasing the song’s popularity.

Despite garnering an impressive 28 million views within a month, the song’s success was short-lived. Interestingly, “Bado Badi” isn’t entirely new.

It was originally performed by the legendary Madam Noor Jehan for the 1973 film “Banarsi Thug,” which starred Firdous, Ejaz, and Munawar Zarif, with its composition arranged by Bakhshi Wazeer Sahib.

Chahat’s reinterpretation breathed new life into the classic, but this also led to its downfall. According to a report from Deccan Herald, the composition of “Bado Badi” bore a striking resemblance to Noor Jehan’s hit, resulting in a copyright infringement claim and prompting YouTube to remove the video.

Chahat’s recent rise to fame began during the lockdown, with his songs becoming popular targets for online ridicule and viral memes. His unique style has earned him numerous interviews and podcast appearances in Pakistan, solidifying his presence in the media.

Originally known as Kashif Rana, Chahat began his career in cricket. As a teenager, he played first-class cricket for Lahore during the 1983-84 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

Seeking better opportunities, he later moved to the UK, where he played club cricket for 12 years. In an interview with Murtaza Ali Shah, Chahat disclosed that he once captained former Pakistani Test cricketer Aaqib Javed.

He discovered Javed at a government school in Sheikhupura and helped him hone his bowling skills.
