Jennifer Lopez accused of Bollywood rip-off

Bollywood composer Bappi Lahiri has claimed credit for the success of Jennifer Lopez's current UK number one single.

The veteran musician told PTI that 'On The Floor' shares distinct similarities with a tune he composed in 1990.

"Jennifer Lopez's new song 'On the Floor' that has a Lambada-sampling, and has become a huge hit, is identical to my song 'Sochna Kya Jo Bhi Hoga Dekha Jayega'," Lahiri said.

"The opening tune is the same. I brought Lambada to India 19 years ago, and she has done it now. The credit goes to me."

The composer, who is known for his trademark gold jewellery, had been involved in an earlier plagiarism case after Truth Hurts sampled sections of his 'Thoda Resham Lagta Hai' for their 2002 single 'Addictive'.

Caterina Lopez, the cousin of the American Idol judge, is said to be trying to launch a career in Bollywood.
