Did Bappi Lahiri inspire J Lo?

Latina singer Jennifer Lopez is back in business with a new single On The Floor from her seventh studio album Love?.  While the song is making its way up the charts, in a very recent development, India's disco-doyen Bappi Lahiri has accused the singer/actress of plagiarism.

According to him, Lopez has lifted the tunes for her new single from his composition Sochna Kya Jo Bhi Hoga Dekha Jayega from the 1990 film Ghayal.

While it's an open secret that BappiDa famously helped himself with the tunes of Lambada for the song, J-Lo presumably acquired the tune legally.

But what do you think, dear readers? Did Bappi Lahiri inspire J-Lo?
