Pakistani singer-songwriter accuses Karan Johar of stealing Jugjugg Jeeyo song 'Nach Punjaban'
Abrar-ul-Haq, a politician and singer-songwriter, also threatened legal action against the makers
A Pakistani politician and singer-songwriter Abrar-ul-Haq has accused filmmaker Karan Johar of stealing his song 'Nach Punjaban'. The song features in Karan's upcoming film Jugjugg Jeeyo.
In a tweet, Abrar stated that he has not sold his song 'Nach Punjaban' to any Indian movie and that producer like Karan Johar should "not use copy song." He also said that he has not licensed the song to anyone and if somebody claims they should produce the agreement, otherwise he would take legal action. "This is my sixth song being copied," he added.
