He is just perfect,” the comment read.
Earlier this month, right after the trailer of the film launched, Abrar accused producer-filmmaker Karan Johar of stealing his song “Nach Punjaban.” Abrar took to Twitter to claim he has not sold his song “Nach Punjaban” and “producers like Karan Johar” should not copy songs. He also threatened legal action. His tweet read ,”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.”
However, T-Series replied to Abrar’s claim and stated they followed proper legal procedure to recreate the song. “All due credits shall be included across all platforms when song releases. As represented by Moviebox Records Label the said song copyrights exclusively vest with moviebox only with all valid documents,” a part of the statement read.
