BAMBAI SE AAYA MERA DOST ... SHAILY SHAILENDRA

Late Shaily Shailendra, son of legendary lyricist Shailendra wrote the song Bambay Se Aaya Mera Dost for the movie Aap Ki Khatir, composed by Bappi Lahiri. Now the same song is used in the movie CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA with a little change, instead of BAMBAI (Bombay / Mumbai), the song says INDIA SE AAYA MERA DOST.
Shaily Shailendra's family members that includes his widow and two young daughters are already fighting a long legal battle with some builders for the ancestral property in Khar and now the makers of this movie CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, that will be released tomorrow, have used a song written by Shaily Shailendra without giving any credit to the late lyricist.
Is there any solution for their grievance. I appeal to all fans of Shailendra and also of Shaily Shailendra, to look into the matter so that justice is done to the family members of the late lyricists.
