Salman Khan’s newly released peppy dance number Photocopy from his forthcoming film Jai Ho has been received very well. The song’s lyrics and music have caught on to the fancy of audiences. However, little does anyone know that the song was tweaked at the last moment. Earlier, the makers had used the word ‘Xerox’ originally, but they replaced it with ‘photocopy’ as they didn’t want to get embroiled in any copyright issues.
The makers also asked for permission from the required authority to use the word in the song. But it was a long process to get the required permissions and formalities in place. That is when the makers decided to coin the word photocopy instead.
Sources share that the makers strongly wanted to use Xerox as the word has more of a recall value. However, the lengthy process kept them at bay. Nevertheless they are happy with the way the song has turned out and are glad as audiences have liked it. Interestingly, makers of Salman’s previous films too had used brand names like Zandu Baam in Malika Arora Khan’s song in Dabangg and Fevicol in Dabangg 2.
When contacted Sohail Khan, he confirmed the news and added that, “Earlier the word Xerox was decided to be used in the song but getting permission to use the brand name would be very time consuming so we stuck to photocopy and I’m glad the song has got very good response from the audiences.”
