Karan Johar and Dharma Movies has recently released a song which is the copy of famous singer Abrar Ul Haq’s block buster song Nach Punjaban. It is to be remembered that the Pakistani version of the song had already broken the records of popularity in its time, song is still played in Punjabi weddings in Pakistan. The song was released in 2001.
Soon after the release of the song Nach Panjaban, Abrar Ul Haq’s opinion came to light, according to which, he has never sold his song Nach Punjaban and it’s a copyright infringement by the filmmaker Karan Johar. Pakistanis also called out the filmmaker.
Today, the Movie Box tweeted their response according to which all the rights of the song are reserved with them. Here is their tweet, “Nach Panjaban has been officially licensed for it to be included in the Film “JugJugg Jeeyo” by TSeries. Karen Johar and Dharma Movies have the legal rights to use this song in their film and the tweet by Abrar Ul Haq earlier today is defamatory and completely unacceptable.”
Senior journalist Fifi Haroon also said that Abrar ul Haq has also sold the copyrights of Billo song due to which Coke Studio has removed the song.
Singer Abrar Ul Haq once again tweeted and said, “Song “Nach Punjaban” has not been licensed to any one. If someone is claiming it , then produce the agreement. I will be taking legal action.
#NachPunjaban”. The singer has said that he’s pretty much focused about taking legal action.
