T-Series issues statement after Pakistani singer’s accusations of copying Nach Punjaban song – Bollywood news

Starring Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Neetu Kapoor, and Anil Kapoor, Jug Jugg Jeeyo has landed itself into controversies since its trailer launch on Sunday, May 22. A singer from Pakistan Abrar-ul-Haq threatened to take legal action against the producers including Karan Johar as he alleged that his song Nach Punjaban has been stolen. However, the record label from which the song was sourced Movie Box and T-Series have rejected his allegations and said that due procedures have been followed. 

“I have not sold my song “Nach Punjaban” to any Indian movie and reserve the rights to go to court to claim damages. Producers like @karanjohar should not use copy songs. This is my 6th song being copied which will not be allowed at all. @DharmaMovies @karanjohar,” he said in a tweet.

In response to the singer’s tweet, record label Movie Box said on Twitter that the song had been officially licensed to be included in the film and that Johar and his production company have the legal rights to use the song in the movie. They also said that his remarks are defamatory.

However, even after the response from the record music label, the Pakistani singer continued to claim that this song hasn’t been licensed to anyone and repeated his threat of legal action. Reacting to the same, on Monday, May 23, T-Series issued a statement mentioning that they have legally acquired all the rights to adapt the song.
