Did Eternals sample Pehla Pehla Pyar Hai for its theme? Varun Grover's observation impresses fans
Marvel released the final trailer for their upcoming superhero movie Eternals on Thursday. While the video was packed with a tonne of new information about the purpose of Eternals, their absence from Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, the threat they now face and more, fans also noticed another interesting bit.
Screenwriter Varun Grover took to Twitter soon after the trailer was released and shared a tweet that impressed many of his followers. In it, he mentioned how the Eternals theme sounds a lot like Hum Aapke Hain Koun song Pehla Pehla Pyar Hai's opening bit.
"The hook riff from 'Pehla pehla pyaar hai' reworked as the theme music for Marvel's ETERNALS?," he asked. Multiple people commented on his tweet, saying that they could hear the similarity too. "YES! I thought the same," wrote one. "Hats off to your observation Bro. I just re-watched the trailer and I can't ignore it now lol," wrote another.
"Thanks! Now I can't unhear it and the tune is stuck in my head," read another tweet. "Yes... keep waiting for Salman Khan to appear," joked a fan.
The bit that seems to have been sampled appears all over the new trailer. Watch the videos and decide:
