Aima Baig and Farhan Saeed were criticized yesterday on Twitter when they dropped teaser’s for their new music video “Na Cher Malangaan Nu” and fans pointed out how it closely resembled pop singer Taylor Swift’s music video for the song “Wildest Dreams”. Soon, twitter users began comparing clips from the two music video to point out how closely they were resembling one another

The director behind the “Wildest Dreams” music video, Joseph Kahn also reached out on Twitter when fans pointed out the comparisons between the two music videos

Adnan Qazi, who was the director of “Na Cher Malangaan Nu” clarified the misunderstanding on Instagram by releasing a full statement where he said that he had been a fan of Taylor Swift’s music for a long time, and he loved the concept behind the “Wildest Dreams” music video and had wanted to use it as an inspiration for a long time:

“I remember it was September 2008 when I first heard & saw @taylorswift ‘s Love Story and I was in an awe of how amazing the video and the song was, at that point I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be a film maker but I knew if I ever will I’ll make videos like those. Time passed and my love and passion for her videos and music grew so much and her collaborations with @josephkahn always inspired me a lot, it wasn’t until very recently when Farhan discussed this song with me and I told him that I would like to pay a tribute to Taylor & her videos through this particular music video, without having a moment of a doubt him and Aima put their trust in me as an artist and allowed me to do, whatever I wanted to do. Obviously I am not claiming that I can be as good as Taylor’s video or the concept but it’s a complete honour for me to create something even as close as Wildest Dreams, thank you Taylor and thank you Joseph Kahn for always always inspiring me to become better at my craft and a better person. Thank you to these incredible artists @farhan_saeed , @aima_baig_official & @bilalsaeed_music to put their complete trust in me, and thank you to all the fans and people who love us and for unconditionally showering us with their kindness and passion.
Always yours
