Abrar ul Haq won’t let Bollywood get away with stealing his iconic ‘Nach Punjaban’ song￼
On May 22, veteran Pakistani singer Abrar-ul-Haq called out Indian filmmaker Karan Johar of plagiarising his song ‘Nach Punjaban’ in the trailer for his next film, ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo.’
Dharma Productions released the trailer for ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo’ on its social media accounts, and it seems like they stole the Billo crooner’s 2002 classic song.
Tagging the production house and Johar, Abrar wrote: “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 copy songs. This is my 6th song being copied which will not be allowed at all.” In another tweet, Abrar claimed that he will be taking legal action.
Netizens supported Abrar’s take on this and insisted that he should mover forward with legal action.
