Nida Nusrat said, “I am the only heir of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and the copyrights of my father’s songs are only with me. How can people take financial benefits by singing my father’s songs.”
“If anyone wants to sing my father’s songs they need to seek permission from me,” she asserted.
Nidae said a company by the name of Khokar Productions was involved in infringement of copyrights and has been sent a legal notice.
Responding to a question whether she will also take legal action against Rahat Fateh Ali Khan who sang Nusrat’s songs for Bollywood, Nida said, “Rahat is my brother and I will not take any action against him.”
“A lot of people spread rumours that Rahat and I are married but there is no truth in that,” she added.
“Coincidentally, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s wife is my namesake.”
She continued, “Even the information on Wikipedia is incorrect.”
Nida further lamented that people have made fake pages using the name of her father Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on social media websites.
Nida also revealed plans to join the music industry. “I will join the music industry very soon since music is in my blood.”
She announced that she would officially launch never-heard-before songs, ghazals and qawwalis of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in the near future.
“I am preparing a website for this purpose and soon the audience will hear that music of my father which had never been made public.”
