Indian composer Anu Malik trended on Twitter after Israel won its first gold in artistic gymnastics at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The odd occurrence was prompted after several netizens noticed a striking resemblance between the Malik-composed song 'Mera Mulk Desh' from the 1996 film Diljale and Israel's national anthem Hatikvah.

Several users trolled Malik for 'copying' Israel's national anthem after it was played when gymnast Artem Dolgopyat took to the top podium for the country's second-ever gold.
