After much chaos and messy journalism, People’s voice won. Karan Johar gave credit to veteran singer Abrar ul Haq for his song. Whereas, The famous song “Nach Punjaban” was adapted in the upcoming movie “Jugg Jug Jeeyo”.
After a lot of buzzes and public clatter, Karan Johar finally surrendered. He finally gave credit to the original singer Abrar Ul Haq. Karan copied his famous cult song “Nach Punjaban” in his upcoming movie. The public instantly pointed out the plagiarized tune and lyrics. This creates trouble for the producer and music team of said movie. After a lot of denial and chaos, the production house accepted their mistake. They added the original singer’s name in the credits finally.
Earlier the singer raised his voice on all forums for this blatant attempt at theft. Abrar ul Haq is a famous singer who turned politician recently. His tunes are all-time famous among people of all age groups. After the theft, he issued his statement “I have not sold my song Nach Punjaban to any Indian film and reserve the right to sue for damages,”. The Billo hitmaker posted on social media, before adding, “Producers like Karan Johar should not utilize plagiarized tunes.” This is the sixth time my music has been duplicated, and it will not be tolerated.”
He even threatens to take legal action against the production house as well. Moreover, the Music team of the company was constantly denying the accusation and saying they have acquired rights to the song beforehand. In addition, T-Series often handles such kind of situation often. Their all songs are either copied or theft without prior permission.
The movie has a cast and crew of all famous names in Bollywood. Anil Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Kiara Advani, Varun Dhawan, and Prajakta Kohli are the main names acting in the feature film. With this controversy, it was evident that the movie suffers at the office miserably. However, The music company sorted the issue quite maturely.
They said “T-series has issued an official statement stating that the rights have been legitimately licensed. I believe that when you have worldwide firms such as YouTube and Spotify… They have highly tight copyright regulations when they play music. It is not a joke. All procedures have been followed “.
